Cassandra Dataset Manager
Cassandra Dataset Manager, referred to simply as
cdm, is a tool to learn how to use Apache Cassandra.
The easiest way to get started is to download the latest cdm and put it somewhere in your path.
Work in progress. Original cdm was written in Python but is being ported to Java for maintainability and the ability to easy distribute a single file.
You can build an executable via
gradle buildBinary. This will create a fat JAR via with a bash wrapper in the
bin directory that you can drop in your $PATH and run like a normal Linux/Mac executable.
CDM doesn't currently work on windows as it's dependent on bash and cqlsh. There are plans to lift this restriction.
Install a dataset
Assuming you've put the
cdm executable in your path, you should be able to run
cdm update and see an updated list of datasets. Run
cdm list to see all the ones available.
cdm install <name> loads your data in your local cassandra cluster. For instance,
cdm install movielens.
