I think you will find Mutagen Cassandra very interesting; it is similar to schema management tools like Flyway for SQL databases:

Mutagen Cassandra is a framework (based on Mutagen) that provides schema versioning and mutation for Apache Cassandra.

Mutagen is a lightweight framework for applying versioned changes (known as mutations) to a resource, in this case a Cassandra schema. Mutagen takes into account the resource's existing state and only applies changes that haven't yet been applied.

Schema mutation with Mutagen helps you make manageable changes to the schema of live Cassandra instances as you update your software, and is especially useful when used across development, test, staging, and production environments to automatically keep schemas in sync.

You can generate schema through the code. That is also one option.

I've been giving some thought to the way we deploy schemas and am looking for something better than out current approach, which is to use cassandra-cli scripts.

What do people use for this ?
