Subject Avro schema in Ruby API
Date Sat, 15 Feb 2014 23:22:03 GMT

I wanted to ask couple of questions.

1) Let's assume I have 2 avro files. I would like to grab schemas of both.
Compare them and decide what to do. The only way I found to get to the
schema in a reader is through

dr = Avro::DataFile::Reader.new(file, Avro::IO::DatumReader.new)

and that is still stringified JSON. Is this the only way or even is this
use case something supported or should I do it differently?

2) Also is ti possible to read just the schema? Sometimes it is useful to
look at a file without actually reading the whole file let's say from s3.

Regards Tomas
