> HBase Shell - Add support for formatting row keys before output
> ---------------------------------------------------------------
>                 Key: HBASE-4818
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-4818
>             Project: HBase
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: shell
>            Reporter: Eran Kampf
>            Priority: Trivial
>         Attachments: format3.patch, hbase-4818.patch
>   Original Estimate: 24h
>  Remaining Estimate: 24h
> 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.
