Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-4818) HBase Shell - Add support for formatting row keys before output
Date Fri, 09 Mar 2012 19:24:59 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-4818?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13226347#comment-13226347
] 

Ben West commented on HBASE-4818:
---------------------------------

Todd: I think since we're using JRuby the formatter can be a java class, right? You'd just
have --format=org.apache....

But I guess we could store it as a table property. 

(Btw: if the formatters are to be useful outside of shell, we'll need a revamp of how they
work. Right now, it just formats text without much knowledge of what the text is - we'd probably
want to have FormatKey() FormatColumn() etc. methods. Which is a good idea anyway.)

> As many HBase users use binary row keys rather than strings to optimize memory consumption
displaying an escaped string in the HBase shell isn't useful (and takes a lot of screen space)
> Allowing user to provide a row key formatter as part of the scan\get commands would allow
developers to display the row key in a way thats makes sense for them.
> Example:
> scan 'stats', { ROWFORMATTER => MyRowFormatter.new }
> The row formatter simply gets the bytes array key and formats it to a string.
> Its an easy change tomake with simple monkey-patching of the shell commands but I would
be happy to see it as part of the shell itself.
