PyHBase

Python client for the HBase Avro interface, supporting both synchronous and asynchronous (Tornado-based) modes of operation.

Installation

This project is available on PyPI.

To install, run:

$ sudo pip install pyhbase

Alternatively, to build directly from source, run:

$ sudo python setup.py install

HBase Avro Gateway

The HBase Avro Gateway is available in HBase 0.9x, and in the HBase 0.2x hbase-trunk-with-avro fork.

To start the Avro Gateway:

$ $HBASE_HOME/bin/hbase-daemon.sh start avro

Usage

Synchronous usage example:

>>> from pyhbase.connection import HBaseConnection
>>> sc = HBaseConnection('localhost', 9090)
>>> sc.create_table('test_table', 'cf1', 'cf2')
>>> sc.put('test_table', 'key1', 'cf1:qualifier1', 'value1')
>>> sc.get('test_table', 'key1')
{u'entries': [{u'value': 'value1', u'qualifier': 'qualifier1', u'family': 'cf1', u'timestamp': 1293494506843}], u'row': 'key1'}

Asynchronous usage example:

>>> from pyhbase.connection import AsyncHBaseConnection
>>> from tornado.ioloop import IOLoop
>>> ac = AsyncHBaseConnection('localhost', 9090)
>>> def on_response(response):
...     print response
...     IOLoop.instance().stop()
...
>>> ac.get('test_table', 'key1', callback=on_response)
>>> IOLoop.instance().start()
{u'entries': [{u'value': 'value1', u'qualifier': 'qualifier1', u'family': 'cf1', u'timestamp': 1293494506843}], u'row': 'key1'}

Note that administrative operations (create_table, alter, truncate, flush, etc.) are not available from the asynchronous client.
