Automatically stand up a Lipstick server and Hadoop cluster to try out Lipstick, a graphical Pig job visualization service.
Vagrant plus its dependencies (VirtualBox)
From the command line run
run-me.sh. This will download the necessary vagrant box if missing then bring it up. This process entails installing a mysql server for Lipstick to store the state of pig runs, a tomcat server for the Lipstick webapp, and a single node Hadoop cluster for running Pig jobs. As such, don't be suprised when it takes a few minutes to complete.
Kick off a sample pig job by running
vagrant ssh -c ./run-example-pig-script.sh. This will execute the provided example pig script which publishes job information to Lipstick.
