A high level C++ client for Cassandra
C++ C Shell


== libcassandra

A C++ wrapper library for the interface to cassandra generated by thrift. This library is based on
the Java client hector.

The master branch will follow along with Cassandra trunk. Branches corresponding to stable releases
of Cassandra will be available. Downloads of these branches are also provided.

The current master and 0.7.0 branches will work with Apache Cassandra 0.7.x. 

== Install

$ ./config/autorun.sh
$ ./configure
$ make 
$ make install

== Running unit tests

If Google's C++ unit test framework, gtest, is installed on your machine, the unit tests can be run.

$ make check

The unit tests require a cassandra server with the default out of the box storage-conf.xml file to be running.

== Compiling apps with libcassandra

$ g++ file.cc -lcassandra -lthrift -I/usr/local/include/thfit

Obviously, you should modify the line for your include to be where your thrift headers are
