Quickstart tool for installing and managing Cassandra in development environments

Project description

Cassandra Quickstart
====================

This tool downloads Cassandra, Java, ccm, and drivers into your home
directory (~/.cassandra-quickstart) and starts a single node Cassandra
cluster. This is meant to be useful for prototyping and development
tasks, not for production.

The idea is to have a one-liner to install everything you need to use
Cassandra on Linux, Mac OSX, or Windows. The only requirement is that
you have Python installed (2.7 tested) which every Linux and Mac
system should have pre-installed. In the future I plan to distribute
an .exe for Windows that bundles all the requirements.

Ubuntu / Debian:
---------------
- sudo apt-get install python-setuptools
- sudo easy_install cassandra-quickstart
- cassandra-quickstart install

Mac OSX
-------
- sudo python -m easy_install -U setuptools
- sudo python -m easy_install cassandra-quickstart
- cassandra-quickstart install

Windows
-------
Windows compatibility is broken in this 0.1 release.

Commands
--------

.. code::

usage: cassandra-quickstart [-h] [--config CONFIG_DIRECTORY] [--name CLUSTER_NAME]
{install,destroy,start,stop,cqlsh,nodetool,status,help} ...
