Subject [jira] [Commented] (ACCUMULO-1045) Create a suite of shell commands or common features
Date Thu, 09 May 2013 00:57:16 GMT


Christopher Tubbs commented on ACCUMULO-1045:

Whatever syntax is used in .accumulorc (or, my preference, .accumulo/config, but optionally
overridden as a command-line --config <file>) to specify the authentication mechanism,
it should be extensible. At some point, I might want tell it to use gnome-keyring.

openssl has some good extensible syntax for passing in passphrases as command line options
(-p env:variableName or -p file:filename, -p pass:literalPassword, -p stdin, etc.) that might
be useful to consider for inspiration.

> Create a suite of command-line utilities (probably based on the shell's existing commands,
or a subset of them), rather than be restricted to the limitations of the shell to issue these
> This adds benefit by being able to more simply pipe to external utilities, like awk,
grep, sed, etc. It also has the potential to eliminate restrictions when scanning for binary
data, standardize command line arguments better (especially by removing the shell "current-table"
context), and leverage settings/profiles stored in some file (like $HOME/.accumulo/config).
