Casson is a ODM (Object Data Model) for
Apache Cassandra using native
The main goal is to make it simple to use, take advantage of the power of Cassandra cluster, and allow the more sophisticated capabilities of Cassandra to be available. The secondary goal to have high performance (necessary for real-time work we do) without too much sanity checking. Now we have an opportunity to start with a completely asynchronous package. It may help to easily transition to Cassandra and Node.js combination.
It might be useful to browse the API documentation for further clarification. Casson API is the place to go.
Of course, to really take advantage of
casson, it would be a really good
idea to a take a look at Cassandra documentation.
node-uuid for uuid
dissolve for binary parsing
jsbn for handling big integers
decimal for decimal
mocha for testing
YUIDoc for documentation
They are also sources of good ideas and inspiration.
helenus a sophisticated CQL implementation with thrift
cql-protocol: a basic CQL binary protocol handling
python-cql: I like Python and also this one.
It works well for our purpose. In order to make it available for general use, however, a few things we don't actively use had to be included along with a few changes.
We can use Issues and Wiki section to get the process going for now.
Currently, I (Mosfeq Rashid) wrote this to do what we need to do, but it would be delightful when others make it better.
