Heco - Installation and configuration of an Hadoop Ecosystem

Heco provide a set of commands to install, configure and manage your Hadoop Ecosystem. At the moment, it is focusing on local developer installation.


git clone
cd heco
npm install
npm link
heco help
heco install

On OSX, I didn't encounter any particular issue, but maybe was it because I already had all the dependencies.

On a fresh Ubuntu 11.04 installation, you will need to prepare the system as follow.

# Install Sun Java JDK (recommended by Hadoop)
UBUNTU_REPO='deb maverick partner'
sudo echo $UBUNTU_REPO > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ubuntu_partner.list
sudo echo 'export JAVA_HOME=/usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun' > /etc/profile.d/
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install sun-java6-jdk
# For Hive and Hue
sudo apt-get install mysql-server
# For Hue
sudo apt-get install python2.7-dev
sudo apt-get install libxslt-dev
sudo apt-get install libmysqlclient-dev
sudo apt-get install libsqlite3-dev
sudo apt-get install libsasl2-dev
sudo apt-get install maven2
sudo apt-get install asciidoc

On Ubuntu 11.10, Hue installation failed, see:
