It has been a long time since the last post. It is time to show my new open source project - gcqlsh. The idea came when I was preparing some Cassandra docker images and I wanted to stay minimalistic with our CI infrastructure. So I have based my Cassandra docker image on Alpine. Unfortunatly came the frustration with installing python and all the dependencies. On the other hand, I needed an utility for automating the schema creation withing the docker container on first start. There it came Golang with its beautiful architecture and performance. Write you code. Build it for any architecture - and you have one single performant binary without need of any dependencies. If you are interested - make sure to visit the project’s github page. Ideas and contributions are also welcome.
