Row filter plugin for Embulk

Build Status

A filter plugin for Embulk to filter out rows

Configuration

Requirement: version >= 0.3.0

  • where: Select only rows which match with conditions written in SQL-like syntax. See SQL-like Syntax

Example

filters:
  - type: row
    where: column1 = 'str'
filters:
  - type: row
    where: |-
      (
        string_column START_WITH 'str' AND
        number_column > 1.0
      )
      OR
      (
        time_column = TIMESTAMP '2016-01-01 +0900' AND
        "true_column" = true
      )

See SQL-like Syntax for more details

SQL-like Syntax

This syntax must be similar with a standard SQL syntax.

where: column1 = 'str'
where: |-
  (
    string_column START_WITH 'str' AND
    number_column > 1.0
  
  )
  OR
  (
    time_column = TIMESTAMP '2016-01-01 +0900' AND
    "true_column" = true AND
    string_column REGEXP '^reg'
  )

Literals

Boolean Literal

true or TRUE or false or FALSE are considered as a boolean literal

Number Literal

Characters matching with a regular expression -?[0-9]+(\.[0-9]+)? is considered as a number literal

String Literal

Characters surrounded by ' such as 'foo' is considered as a string literal

Timestamp Literal

NOTE: It became possible to omit TIMESTAMP keyword on comparing with timestamp identifier (column) from version >= 0.3.3.

TIMESTAMP ( NumberLiteral | StringLiteral ) such as TIMESTAMP 1470433087.747123 or TIMESTAMP '2016-08-06 06:38:07.747123 +0900' is considered as a timestamp literal

Number is a epoch time since 1970-01-01 UTC with nano time resolution.

String is a timestamp string which matches with one of following format:

  • %Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S.%N %z
  • %Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S.%N
  • %Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S %z
  • %Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S
  • %Y-%m-%d %z
  • %Y-%m-%d

The time zone for formats without %z is UTC, and the time resolution is micro second (caused by limitation of Embulk TimestampParser).

Json Literal

Not supported yet

Identifier Literal

Characters matching with a regular expression [a-zA-Z_][a-zA-z0-9_]* such as foobar, and characters surrounded by " such as "foo-bar", "foo.bar", and "foo\"bar" are considred as an identifier literal, that is, embulk's column name.

Operators

Boolean Operator

  • =
  • !=

Number Operator (Long and Double)

  • =
  • !=
  • >
  • >=
  • <=
  • <

String Operator

  • =
  • !=
  • START_WITH
  • END_WITH
  • INCLUDE
  • REGEXP

Timestamp Operator

  • =
  • !=
  • >
  • >=
  • <=
  • <

Json Operator

Not supported yet

unary operator

  • "xxx IS NULL"
  • "xxx IS NOT NULL"
  • "NOT xxx"

Old Configuration

Versions >= 0.3.0 has where option to supports SQL-like syntax. I recommend to use it.

Following options are deprecated, and will be removed someday.

  • condition: AND or OR (string, default: AND).
  • conditions: select only rows which matches with conditions.
    • column: column name (string, required)
    • operator operator (string, optional, default: ==)
      • boolean operator
        • ==
        • !=
      • numeric operator (long, double, Timestamp)
        • ==
        • !=
        • >
        • >=
        • <=
        • <
      • string operator
        • ==
        • !=
        • start_with (or startsWith)
        • end_with (or endsWith)
        • include (or contains)
      • unary operator
        • IS NULL
        • IS NOT NULL
    • argument: argument for the operation (string, required for non-unary operators)
    • not: not (boolean, optional, default: false)
    • format: special option for timestamp column, specify the format of timestamp argument, parsed argument is compared with the column value as Timestamp object (string, default is %Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S.%N %z)
    • timezone: special option for timestamp column, specify the timezone of timestamp argument (string, default is UTC)

NOTE: column type is automatically retrieved from input data (inputSchema)

Example (AND)

Deprecated

filters:
  - type: row
    condition: AND
    conditions:
      - {column: foo,  operator: "IS NOT NULL"}
      - {column: id,   operator: ">=", argument: 10}
      - {column: id,   operator: "<",  argument: 20}
      - {column: name, opeartor: "include", argument: foo, not: true}
      - {column: time, operator: "==", argument: "2015-07-13", format: "%Y-%m-%d"}

Example (OR)

Deprecated

filters:
  - type: row
    condition: OR
    conditions:
      - {column: a, operator: "IS NOT NULL"}
      - {column: b, operator: "IS NOT NULL"}

Example (AND of OR)

Deprecated

You can express a condition such as (A OR B) AND (C OR D) by combining multiple filters like

filters:
  - type: row
    condition: OR
    conditions:
      - {column: a, operator: "IS NOT NULL"}
      - {column: b, operator: "IS NOT NULL"}
  - type: row
    condition: OR
    conditions:
      - {column: c, operator: "IS NOT NULL"}
      - {column: d, operator: "IS NOT NULL"}

Comparisions

  • embulk-filter-calcite
    • embulk-filter-calcite is a pretty nice plugin which enables us to write SQL query to filter embulk records, not only WHERE but also SELECT.
    • Based on my benchmark (Japanese), embulk-filter-row was faster than embulk-filter-calcite.
    • Choose which to use as your demand.

ToDo

  • Support filtering by values of type: json with JSONPath
  • Support IN operator

ChangeLog

CHANGELOG.md

Development

Run example:

$ ./gradlew classpath
$ embulk preview -I lib example/example.yml

Run test:

$ ./gradlew test

Run checkstyle:

$ ./gradlew check

Release gem:

$ ./gradlew gemPush

Development of SQL-like Syntax

Read the article Supported SQL-like Syntax with embulk-filter-row using BYACC/J and JFlex.

To download BYACC/J and JFlex and run them, you can use:

$ script/byaccj.sh

or

$ ./gradlew byaccj # this runs script/byaccj.sh internally

This generates src/main/java/org/embulk/filter/row/where/{Parser,ParserVal,Yylex}.java.

The byaccj task of gradle is ran before compileJava task (which means to be ran before classpath or test task also) automatically.
