Subject Re: Choosing python client lib for Cassandra
Date Tue, 26 Nov 2013 19:21:24 GMT
We're currently using the "cql" package, which is really a wrapper around
thrift.

To your concern about deadlines, I'm not sure how writing raw CQL is going
to be any faster than using a mapper library for anything other than the
most trivial of project.
