DataStax Node.js Driver for Apache Cassandra Quickstart

A basic demo CRUD application using the DataStax Node.js Driver for Apache Cassandra. The intent is to help users get up and running quickly with the driver. If you are having trouble, the complete code solution for quickstart.js can be found here.

Prerequisites

  • A running instance of Apache Cassandra® 1.2+
  • Node.js server environment
  • Use npm to install the driver: npm install cassandra-driver

Create the keyspace and table

The users.cql file provides the schema used for this project:

CREATE KEYSPACE demo
    WITH replication = {'class': 'SimpleStrategy', 'replication_factor': '1'};

CREATE TABLE demo.users (
    lastname text PRIMARY KEY,
    age int,
    city text,
    email text,
    firstname text);

Connect to your cluster

All of our code is contained in the quickstart.js file. The cassandra.Client() instance connects to our cluster. You need to provide the address or host name of your node and your local data center name.

// TO DO: Fill in your own host and data center
const client = new cassandra.Client({ 
  contactPoints: ['127.0.0.1'], 
  localDataCenter: 'datacenter1',  
  keyspace: 'demo' 
});

CRUD Operations

Fill the code in the functions that will add a user, get a user, update a user and delete a user from the table with the driver.

INSERT a user

function insertUser(lastname, age, city, email, firstname) {
  // TO DO: execute a prepared statement that inserts one user into the table
  const insert = 'INSERT INTO users (lastname, age, city, email, firstname) VALUES (?,?,?,?,?)';
  const params = [ lastname, age, city, email, firstname ];
  return client.execute(insert, params, { prepare : true });
}

SELECT a user

function selectUser(lastname) {
  // TO DO: execute a prepared statement that retrieves one user from the table
  const select = 'SELECT firstname, age FROM users WHERE lastname = ?';
  const params = [ lastname ] ;
  return client.execute(select, params, { prepare : true });
}

UPDATE a user's age

function updateUser(age, lastname) {
  // TO DO: execute a prepared statement that updates the age of one user
  const update = 'UPDATE users SET age = ? WHERE lastname = ?';
  return client.execute(update, [ age, lastname ], { prepare : true } )
}

DELETE a user

function deleteUser(lastname) {
  // TO DO: execute a prepared that deletes one user from the table
  const remove = 'DELETE FROM users WHERE lastname = ?';
  const params = [ lastname ];
  return client.execute(remove, params, { prepare: true })
}
