Fresh data with Prismatic Schema, Fressian, Pail and Cascalog.

Fresh data with Prismatic Schema, Fressian, Pail and Cascalog.

This is the fourth post in a series on using Pail and Cascalog in Clojure. In the first post I wrote about using Thrift, Pail and Cascalog. My initial goals were to explore Nathan Mar’s Lambda Architecture from clojure. In the second post I used Fressian instead of Thrift to serialize clojure data to and from a pail. The simplicity of using Fressian with native clojure data types was really...

More specifically this is about using Pail with a Graph Schema, which is a little bit more specialized than just using thrift and Pail. The use of Graph Schema and the likeness of the example Graph Schema comes from Nathan Marz’ Book on Big...

It’s just that there isn’t much in the way of documentation. ┬áIn this post I’ll show how to get all of these things working together. It’s actually pretty easy and it’s very slick once it’s working.
