HDFS Python client based on WebHDFS REST API

Project Description
# WebHDFS Python Client Implementation

WebHDFS is REST-API to HDFS. To facilitate access to WebHDFS from Python, webhdfs-py was developed. The library can easily be installed via easy_install or pip:

easy_install webhdfs

Webhdfs-py has no further dependencies and solely relies on the Python standard library. Similar to the Python os package, webhdfs-py provides basic capabilities like the creation/listing and deletion of directories on files.

## Hadoop configuration

Ensure that WebHDFS is enabled in the `hdfs-site.xml`:

Relevant properties:

<property>
<name>dfs.webhdfs.enabled</name>
<value>true</value>
</property>

see <http://hadoop.apache.org/docs/stable/hadoop-project-dist/hadoop-hdfs/WebHDFS.html>


## Limitations

* Kerberos security not supported
