DataStax Python Driver for Apache Cassandra Quickstart

A basic Python demo CRUD application using the DataStax Python 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.py can be found here.

Prerequisites

  • A running instance of Apache Cassandra® 2.1+
  • Python 2.7, 3.4, 3.5, or 3.6.
  • Use Pip to install the driver: pip install cassandra-driver
  • We highly recommend to use a virtualenv

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.py file. The create_connection() function connects to our cluster. By default, Cluster() will try to connect to 127.0.0.1 (localhost). Replace with your own contact point(s) if necessary.

def create_connection():
    # TO DO: Fill in your own contact point
    cluster = Cluster(['127.0.0.1'])
    return cluster.connect('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

def set_user(session, lastname, age, city, email, firstname):
    # TO DO: execute SimpleStatement that inserts one user into the table
    session.execute("INSERT INTO users (lastname, age, city, email, firstname) VALUES (%s,%s,%s,%s,%s)", [lastname, age, city, email, firstname])

SELECT a user

def get_user(session, lastname):
    # TO DO: execute SimpleStatement that retrieves one user from the table
    # TO DO: print firstname and age of user
    result = session.execute("SELECT * FROM users WHERE lastname = %s", [lastname]).one()
    print result.firstname, result.age

UPDATE a user's age

def update_user(session, new_age, lastname):
    # TO DO: execute SimpleStatement that updates the age of one user
    session.execute("UPDATE users SET age =%s WHERE lastname = %s", [new_age, lastname])

DELETE a user

def delete_user(session, lastname):
    # TO DO: execute SimpleStatement that deletes one user from the table
    session.execute("DELETE FROM users WHERE lastname = %s", [lastname])
