Subject [jira] [Commented] (DRILL-3421) Add new outputformat=json
Date Tue, 30 Jun 2015 00:30:05 GMT

Jason Altekruse commented on DRILL-3421:
----------------------------------------

I don't know if this is something we want to encourage users to do. We have CREATE TABLE AS,
which can be configured to output JSON (by setting `store.format` = 'json'). It is not efficient
to use the terminal output to produce any volume of output, especially if you want to save
it to a file. There are additional complications that we truncate long values when they are
displayed on the command line, which would cause this output to look incorrect. Is there a
particular version why users would need to produce this kind of output from sqlline?

> ouputformat=vertical is nearly a json output format. Adding a json format option here,
where the field names are quoted etc.. would make it dead simple to generate json output from
query results.
