Getting Started

The following will guide you through setting up a single node instance of Solandra.

From the Solandra base directory:

ant  
cd solandra-app
./bin/solandra  

Now that Solandra is running you can run the demo from the base directory:

cd reuters-demo
./1-download-data.sh  
./2-import-data.sh  

While data is loading open the file ./reuters-demo/website/index.html in your favorite browser

If you'd like to connect to the datastore:

./solandra-app/bin/cassandra-cli -h localhost -p 9160 -k L

The columns are all encoded as bytes, but you can unencode them using the ASSUME command:

ASSUME Docs COMPARATOR AS utf8;
ASSUME TL COMPARATOR AS utf8;
