  • Apache Kylin command line tools
  • Apache Kylin dialect for SQLAlchemy

You can get more detail from this Github Repository.

Installation

Kylin dialect for SQLAlchemy

Any application that uses SQLAlchemy can now query Apache Kylin with this Apache Kylin dialect installed. It is part of the Apache Kylin Python Client Library, so if you already installed this library in the previous step, you are ready to use. You may use below template to build DSN to connect Apache Kylin.

kylin://<username>:<password>@<hostname>:<port>/<project>?version=<v1|v2>&prefix=</kylin/api>

Examples for SQLAlchemy

Test connection with Apache Kylin

$ python
  >>> import sqlalchemy as sa
  >>> kylin_engine = sa.create_engine('kylin://username:password@hostname:7070/learn_kylin?version=v1')
  >>> results = kylin_engine.execute('SELECT count(*) FROM KYLIN_SALES')
  >>> [e for e in results]
    [(4953,)]
  >>> kylin_engine.table_names()
    [u'KYLIN_ACCOUNT',
     u'KYLIN_CAL_DT',
     u'KYLIN_CATEGORY_GROUPINGS',
     u'KYLIN_COUNTRY',
     u'KYLIN_SALES',
     u'KYLIN_STREAMING_TABLE']
