Using python to connect to Hive in cloudera

New Contributor

please i need help , i write this simple code in python but i have problem with packages 


from pyhive import hive
import pandas as pd

#Create Hive connection
conn = hive.Connection(host="", port=10000, username="cloudera" , database="default")

# Read Hive table and Create pandas dataframe
df = pd.read_sql("SELECT * FROM etudiantsv ", conn)

sur anaconda avec python 2 : erreur 
in __init__(self, host, port, username, database, auth, configuration, kerberos_service_name, password, thrift_transport)
150 elif auth in ('LDAP', 'KERBEROS', 'NONE', 'CUSTOM'):
151 # Defer import so package dependency is optional
--> 152 import sasl
153 import thrift_sasl

ImportError: No module named sasl

in  pycharm python 3.7

i have this error : 

def execute(self, operation, parameters=None, async=False):
SyntaxError: invalid syntax

Regarding python 2. If your hive server is configured with SSL, then you should consider installing "sasl" package in python.


As about python3, although this is a python question not hive related, usually the issue is on the previous lines, e.g. quotes or parentheses that do not terminate.
