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: you must use the framed thrift transport, TFramedTransport in most implementations, on the server side. 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).

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();
});

Custom client and server example

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