Subject Python HDFS library
Date Thu, 26 Aug 2010 02:52:25 GMT
Hey hadoopers -

I've put together a python hdfs library and would love some feedback:


Instead of wrapping the command-line ``hadoop`` tool like other python
hdfs libraries, this one uses ctypes to call libhdfs directly. It has
a file-like object for working with files, and a filesystem class for
interacting with non-file data.

I don't recommend using this in production yet, and not all methods
have been wrapped, but its usable and far enough along to demonstrate
this approach.
