HUE - File Browser - file content sort capabilities

HUE - File Browser - file content sort capabilities

New Contributor

We are proposing HUE - File Browser as a tool where some of our applications users can view as well as make minor changes to files and pig scripts. Around this, we want to give edit capabilities of files with provisions to be able to sort the contents. I got this very good link that provides details or capabilities of the File Browser, which does say that a file contents can be sorted through the HUE browser interface, if I understand correctly. http://blog.cloudera.com/blog/2013/04/demo-hdfs-file-operations-made-easy-with-hue/

 

However, I don't see this option when I log in to my HUE. Within the File Browser - Edit, I see options to just edit and save the contents of the file but not a capability to sort the contents of the file based on a key through the File Browser.

 

Could you let me know if that is possibe?

 

Thanks
Sathish

Re: HUE - File Browser - file content sort capabilities

You can sort *the files* by names, type, size etc... no the content of the
file.

You can browse huge files efficiently and edit small ones.
