Solutions using Cassandra DB

Build a Data-Intensive, Full Stack App from Start to Finish

The strength of a full-stack data engineer is the ability to bring the entire stack together, coordinating all of your microservices and features into a single product. Any developer can slap a new feature onto your project, but if new features aren't seamlessly integrated into your project as a whole, they will run inefficiently and slow down future development. See how everything can work together, from data pipeline to web app to data visualization and user-facing search functionality. View on Github

ETL from Cassandra using Spark

Cassandra DB performs writes fast and leaves read-heavy work to 3rd-party integrations. For example, Elassandra solves this with Elasticsearch and Datastax solves this with Solr and Spark (or even Graph depending on the use case). Of course, we could also integrate Cassandra with these same tools using open source connectors and drivers. Check out an example of how to extract your Cassandra into Spark for an ETL pipeline. View on Github

Manage your Cassandra Logs using the ELK Stack

Distributed apps quickly get to the place where trying to debug using tail -f becomes untenable. However, ignoring your logs isn't an option: to quote Jay Kreps' book I Heart Logs, "the humble log is an abstraction that lies at the heart of many systems, from NoSQL databases to cryptocurrencies. Even though most engineers don’t think much about them,...logs are worthy of your attention." The ELK Stack (Elasticsearch, Logstash, and Kibana) is a go-to tool for managing your logs and making them help you rather than just taking up hard drive space. Unfortunately, it does not yet have out-of-the-box log processing or dashboards for Cassandra. Check out a way to extract meaningful information from your Cassandra logs here. View on Github

Provide Search for Cassandra DB using Elasticsearch and Flask

Project screenshot

Your data won't help you if you don't know how to use it. One way is to allow end-users (or admins) to search through your data. Elassandra integrates Elasticsearch with your Cassandra DB for near instant search results and a REST API. One way to access that REST API is by connecting to it through a React app, with a Flask app server in the middle to handle requests.
