Sharkbite is a native client for key/value stores. With initial support for Apache Accumulo, the design can and has been used to support other key/value stores. Development began in 2014 and has slowly evolved. there is no structural specificity to Accumulo despite being the base implementation. Despite this the examples below will look very much like Accumulo due to aliasing. This is intentional.
Capabilities That will be supported in V0.4 :
- Work with Accumulo 1.6.x, 1.7.x, 1.8.x and 1.9.x
- Read/Write : Reading and writing data to Accumulo is currently supported.
- Table Operations : Most table operations are currently supported. This includes the fate operations that the normal Accumulo client performs.
- Security Operations : Security operations aren't all implemented, but you should be able to add users, change authorizations, passwords, and remove users.
Current Master progress
- Development is focusing on abstracting out 2.x changes for Accumulo Proper.
About the name
Sharkbite's name originated from design as a connector that abstracted components in which we tightly coupled and gripped interfaces of the underlying datastore. With an abstraction layer for access, and using cross compatible objects, the underlying interfaces are heavily coupled to each database. As a result, Sharkbite became a fitting name since interfaces exist to abstract the high coupling that exists within implementations of the API.
GNU 4+ cmake make
bison 3+ automake autotool autoconf libtool libevent
mkdir build && cd build && cmake .. && cmake --build . ; make test This will build the package and library, which you can use. It will also build examples in the examples directory+
Building on OSX
Follow the same procedures as above, but you may need to force linking bison 3.x if you installed it via Homebrew
What we provide
Please note that the library of sharkbite consists of C bindings to allow you to create various connectors via our C interfaces and a Python binding built via Pybind11.
The Python library can be installed by simply typing pip install . into the root source directory. During this process the C++ library and python bindings will be built.
A Python example is included. This is your primary example of the Python bound sharkbite library.
The C library is a wrapper around the C++ Code. We supply a target called "capi". We have an example built to use [python via our C-Library using C-Types ](https://github.com/phrocker/sharkbite/blob/master/c-library-examples/python/example.py].
This python example is vestigial and only exists as an example of the C-API wrappers. Implementations can be written in Go, Rust, Ruby, etc.
A C++ Example can be found here as well as in src/examples/
A Python example can be found [here] (https://github.com/phrocker/sharkbite/blob/master/examples/pythonexample.py)
