Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-9758) libhdfs++: Implement Python bindings
Date Wed, 08 Jun 2016 14:39:20 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-9758?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15320657#comment-15320657

Tibor Kiss commented on HDFS-9758:

Going forward with the implementation I've realized that some calls (e.g. hdfsExists, hdfsCreateFile,
etc) are not exposed through the C interface.
Is it intentional or just WiP?

> It'd be really useful to have bindings for various scripting languages.  Python would
be a good start because of it's popularity and how easy it is to interact with shared libraries
using the ctypes module.  I think bindings for the V8 engine that nodeJS uses would be a close
second in terms of expanding the potential user base.
> Probably worth starting with just adding a synchronous API and building from there to
avoid interactions with python's garbage collector until the bindings prove to be solid.
