Subject [jira] [Created] (ASTERIXDB-1163) Usability of Asterix front-end examples - Discussion

---------------------------------------------

             Summary: Usability of Asterix front-end examples - Discussion
                 Key: ASTERIXDB-1163
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ASTERIXDB-1163
             Project: Apache AsterixDB
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Other
         Environment: n/a
            Reporter: Eugenia Gabrielova
            Priority: Minor


Motivation:
While collaborating with [~javierjia], I observed that the SDK design and existing examples
were not ideal for helping him get things done in his project. He mentioned that he found
it more straightforward to submit queries directly and the API was too clunky. He wanted more
ease of use in communicating with a remote machine.

Discussion:
The existing SDK setup and examples aren't great for getting things done and it can be challenging
to untangle. I would like to refactor this code with significant design changes with feedback
from the community on what is needed.

Questions:
- Those who have built (or would like to build) front-end stuff with Asterix - what would
help you? What made your life difficult?
- Thoughts on language-specific libraries? e.g., pysterix (python bridge for Asterix)

Goal: I'd like to make it easy for people to build cool things on AsterixDB, without a messy
front-end learning curve. This change would also make it easier to automatically test the
examples (a concern recently mentioned in the mailing list). Drastically reducing the technical
debt of the geospatial example is my next step.
