Apache Superset with Apache Kudu

Explorer

Hello,

 

I saw couple of blogs talks about using Superset with Kudu throw Impala.

Beside the fact that the blog is from 2017, do I need to install Impala to get it work, or there is another way to plug Kudu with Superset like in the case of Druid (Superset has a native connector to Druid and a majority of Druid’s features are accessible through Superset)?

 

Regards

Anis

Hi,

 

I think you will need Impala to make Superset working with Kudu.  At http://superset.apache.org/#databases it's mentioned the database engine needs '... proper DB-API driver and SQLAlchemy dialect ...' to be usable by Superset.  I guess the '...proper DB-API driver ...' is based on JDBC, and there isn't JDBC for Kudu as of now.

 

As far as I know, there isn't native Superset Kudu connector either.  However, contributions are always welcome!

 

 

Kind regards,

 

Alexey
