pip install django-cassandra-engine

## Basic Usage ##

1. Add `django_cassandra_engine` to `INSTALLED_APPS` in your `` file:

INSTALLED_APPS = ('django_cassandra_engine',) + INSTALLED_APPS

2. Change `DATABASES` setting:

'default': {
'ENGINE': 'django_cassandra_engine',
'NAME': 'db',
'TEST_NAME': 'test_db',
'HOST': ',',
'replication': {
'strategy_class': 'SimpleStrategy',
'replication_factor': 1

3. Define some model:

# myapp/

import uuid
from cassandra.cqlengine import columns
from cassandra.cqlengine.models import Model

class ExampleModel(Model):
example_id = columns.UUID(primary_key=True, default=uuid.uuid4)
example_type = columns.Integer(index=True)
created_at = columns.DateTime()
description = columns.Text(required=False)

4. Run `./ sync_cassandra`
5. Done!
