node-thrift

Thrift protocol implementation for nodejs. As of version 0.0.1, the basic protocol has been implemented. A Thrift compiler that will generate the .js files from a Thrift specification is being implemented as well, see the Thrift Compiler section below.

NOTE: By default, node-thrift uses TFramedTransport. Using a popular example, this is enabled by default in Cassandra 0.7 (but configuration must be changed in Cassandra 0.6.x and earlier). See the examples folder to see how to enable TBufferedTransport (added in 0.7.0).

Install

npm install thrift 

Thrift Compiler

A Thrift compiler is included in the 0.6.0 release of Thrift. You can compile nodejs sources by running the following:

thrift --gen js:node thrift_file

Cassandra Client Example:

Here is a Cassandra example:

var thrift = require('thrift'),
    Cassandra = require('./gen-nodejs/Cassandra')
    ttypes = require('./gen-nodejs/cassandra_types');

var connection = thrift.createConnection("localhost", 9160),
    client = thrift.createClient(Cassandra, connection);

connection.on('error', function(err) {
  console.error(err);
});

client.get_slice("Keyspace", "key", new ttypes.ColumnParent({column_family: "ExampleCF"}), new ttypes.SlicePredicate({slice_range: new ttypes.SliceRange({start: '', finish: ''})}), ttypes.ConsistencyLevel.ONE, function(err, data) {
  if (err) {
    // handle err
  } else {
    // data == [ttypes.ColumnOrSuperColumn, ...]
  }
  connection.end();
});

Libraries using node-thrift

Custom client and server example

An example based on the one shown on the Thrift front page is included in the examples folder.
