cqlsh is a Python-based command-line client for running CQL commands on a cassandra cluster.

Project description

cqlsh

cqlsh is a Python-based command-line client for running CQL commands on a cassandra cluster.

Normally it's packaged as part of the full Apache Cassandra™ installation. This repo repackages it into a standalone Python package for lighter-weight installs.

Installing:

Install and update using pip:

$ pip install -U cqlsh

Running:

$ cqlsh --help

Documentation:

Documentation is available as part of the official Apache Cassandra™ documentation.

Contributing:

Because this is a repackaging of cqlsh from the official Cassandra repo, only issues / PRs related to PyPI packaging should be opened against this repo. If you would like to contribute to cqlsh itself, find out more information here.

Steps to sanity check that the packaging works as expected:

  1. Install cqlsh locally (probably in a virtualenv):
$ pip install . -e  # run from within the cqlsh directory
  1. Start a local copy of Cassandra:
$ docker pull cassandra
$ docker run -it --rm -p 9042:9042 cassandra
  1. Verify cqlsh successfully connects to the server:
$ cqlsh

Connected to Test Cluster at 127.0.0.1:9042
[cqlsh 6.0.0 | Cassandra 4.0.0 | CQL spec 3.4.5 | Native protocol v5]

This PyPI package is maintained by Jeff Widman. Previous maintainers: Spiro and Andrew Mussey.

Changelog:

Unfortunately the Cassandra project does not always increment the cqlsh version number, so for every release we need to document not only the cqlsh version but also the cassandra version in which it shipped.

This packages cqlsh 6.0.0 from Cassandra 4.0:

This packages cqlsh 5.0.1 from Cassandra 4.0-beta4:
