Hive and Hadoop Command Snippet search

Why? #

I’ve found myself looking up the “exact” syntax for DML / DDL in Hive countless times. Also, I tend to forget the list of date functions and parameters. I would use a combination of Google Search and/or a cheat sheet for these. These don’t work for me very well for multiple reasons (I’ll cover those is a separate post if enough people are interested). I wanted a no-frills snippet search tool but couldn’t find a good one for hadoop and hive. So I built my own.

If you’re interested you can access the tool at www.greppage.com. The UI is very basic and I’ll appreciate your feedback.Screen Shot 2015-06-26 at 7.28.29 AM.png
