[]
>>> webHDFS.mkdir('/foo')
True
>>> print(webHDFS.listdir('/'))
[{u'group': u'supergroup', u'permission': u'755', u'blockSize': 0, u'accessTime': 0, u'pathSuffix': u'foo', u'modificationTime': 1429805040695, u'replication': 0, u'length': 0, u'childrenNum': 0, u'owner': u'username', u'storagePolicy': 0, u'type': u'DIRECTORY', u'fileId': 16387}]
>>> print webHDFS.create('/foo/foo.txt', "just put some text here", True)
True
>>> print webHDFS.open('/pywebhdfs_test/foo.txt')
just put some text here
>>> webHDFS.remove('/foo')
True
>>> print(webHDFS.listdir('/'))
[]

Hadoop configuration

To enable WebHDFS in Hadoop add this to your $HADOOP_DIR/conf/hdfs-site.xml:

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

To enable append on HDFS you need to configure your hdfs-site.xml as follows:

<property>
    <name>dfs.support.append</name>
    <value>true</value>
</property>
