Thanks for those links JM - hadn't seen any of those before. I think it's useful to have stuff like this, for new users to explore using HBase.

Re: Phoenix, I don't think it's fundamentally any more involved than any of those, it's just a library. It exposes a JDBC driver interface, so GUI tools that work with JDBC would be enabled by Phoenix.

Few easy to install and use tools which I already tried:

There might be other, but those one at least are doing the basic things to
look into you tables.

Maybe Phoenix ( is what you are

Subject: Re: querying hbase
I haven't tried that because I don't know how to. Still I think I am
looking for a nice GUI interface that can take in HBase connection info and
help me view the data something like pgadmin (or its php version), sql
developer, etc

The shell allows you to use filters just like the standard HBase API but
with jruby syntax. Have you tried that or that is too painful and you
a simpler tool ?

are there any tools out there that can help in visualizing data stored
Hbase? I know the shell lets you do basic stuff. But if I don't know
rowid I am looking for or if I want to rows with family say *name* (yes
like) are there any tools that can help with this? Not trying to use
on production (although that would be nice) just dev env for now. Thank
for any suggestionns
