Get Started

Example usage of Maelstrom:

from uuid import uuid4
import maelstrom
from maelstrom.base import Base
      from maelstrom.lookup import import LookUp

#ip1 and ip2 are IP address of some, but not necessarily all, nodes of your Cassandra cluster.
maelstrom.start([ip1, ip2])

class User(Base):

  __tablename__ = "users"

  defaults = {
    'id' = uuid4(),
    'name' = '',
    'email' = '',

  lookups = ["email"]

  def __init__(self, *args, **kwargs):
    Base.__init__(self, *arks, **kwargs)

#constructs table in the specified keyspace

new_user = User(name = "Joe", email="")

get_user = Account.get_by_lookup("")
