riak Ruby Protocol Buffers Client

DESCRIPTION:

This is a Ruby client for Riakpb, using protocol buffers instead of REST. It offers some benefit in terms of speed and it abstracts Buckets/Keys differently than does the REST client. Different != Better.

FEATURES/PROBLEMS:

  • It can list buckets! Huzzah!

  • You can destroy a bucket, which basically lists its keys and iterates over them–deleting each.

  • It works, which surely counts for something.

  • It's still rough around the edges, but certainly usable. I'm attempting to polish it, though suggestions welcome.

SYNOPSIS:

This is a work in progress and I am current improving the rspec and the documentation, but please have fun and give me some feedback. The below examples give you an overview on how to use this package.

Connect to riak and ping it:

>> client = Riakpb::Client.new # Riakpb::Client.new({:host => "ubuntu01", :port => 1234})
=> #<Riakpb::Client:0x0000010328a040 @host="127.0.0.1", @port=8087, @w=nil, @dw=nil, @buckets=[], @bucket_cache={}>
>> client.ping?
=> true

List Buckets within riak:

Not suggested for use in production

>> client = Riakpb::Client.new
=> #<Riakpb::Client:0x00000101439a78 @host="127.0.0.1", @port=8087, @w=nil, @dw=nil, @buckets=[], @bucket_cache={}>
>> client.buckets
=> ["hb", "goog"]

Fetch a Bucket:

>> bucket = client["goog"]
=> #<Riakpb::Bucket name=goog, props={n_val=>3, allow_mult=false}>

Destroy a Bucket:

>> bucket.destroy!
=> true

List Keys within the Bucket:

>> bucket = client["goog"]
=> #<Riakpb::Bucket name=goog, props={n_val=>3, allow_mult=false}>
>> bucket.keys
=> ["2010-05-03", "2010-03-24", "2010-03-05", "2010-02-25", <<SNIP>>, "2005-02-10", "2005-01-04"]

Fetch a Key:

>> key = bucket["2010-04-12"]
=> #<Riakpb::Key name="2010-04-12", vclock="k\xCEa```\xCC`\xCA\x05R,\xCC\xF3{*2\x98\x12\x19\xF3X\x19N\xCF\xEB8\xCA\x97\x05\x00", contents=[#<#Riakpb::Content value={"Date"=>Mon, 12 Apr 2010, "Open"=>"567.35", "High"=>"574.00", "Low"=>"566.22", "Close"=>"572.73", "Volume"=>"2352400", "Adj Close"=>"572.73"}, content_type="application/json", vtag="3pbhcnmUtPZvXBSCmo5ESs", links=[], last_mod=1276388043, last_mod_usecs=65345, usermeta={}>]>

Fetch a Key's Content:

Differs from the REST client. Key+Content = ROjbect

>> rcon = key.content
=> #<#Riakpb::Content value={"Date"=>Mon, 12 Apr 2010, "Open"=>"567.35", "High"=>"574.00", "Low"=>"566.22", "Close"=>"572.73", "Volume"=>"2352400", "Adj Close"=>"572.73"}, content_type="application/json", vtag="3pbhcnmUtPZvXBSCmo5ESs", links=[], last_mod=1276388043, last_mod_usecs=65345, usermeta={}>

Play with the Content's data and save it:

>> rcon.value
=> {"Date"=>Mon, 12 Apr 2010, "Open"=>"567.35", "High"=>"574.00", "Low"=>"566.22", "Close"=>"572.73", "Volume"=>"2352400", "Adj Close"=>"572.73"}
>> rcon.value.class
=> Hash
>> rcon.value["Date"]
=> Mon, 12 Apr 2010
>> rcon.value["Date"] += 1.day

MapReduce:

I'm working on ways to simplify M/R requests. It works the same as in ripple. Largely because it's ripped off from it, with very few changes (so far).

Load the GOOG stocks from the riak Fast Track:

require 'riakpb'
require 'csv'

client = Riakpb::Client.new
bucket = client["goog"]

CSV.foreach('goog.csv', :headers => true) do |row|
  puts row.first[1].to_s
  key = bucket[row.first[1].to_s]
  key.content.value = Hash[row.to_a]
  key.save
end
