Re: Python client lib for Accumulo?
Welcome Edmon. I think as far as a pure python library goes, you would
have to interface with the thrift protocols. My sense is that would be
discouraged at this point by the devs. I do have some experience with
it though, I made an attempt to interface to Accumulo with Node.js. It
turned into me writing the JavaScript version of TCompactProtocol, but
it's still incomplete at this point. I would vote for either
developing an officially supported Thrift interface, or an officially
supported REST interface using a JVM language. Then the language
barrier would be easier to overcome.
