Hortonworks Sandbox for HDP and HDF is your chance to get started on learning, developing, testing and trying out new features. Each download comes preconfigured with interactive tutorials, sample data and developments from the Apache community.

If you haven't use Prose.io, for editing of markup and markdown content in your Github repositories, I highly recommend it. Prose.io provides a dead simple editor for content, which works very will for managing static page or blog content stored in a Github repository, and made public using Github Pages. 

I use Prose.io to easily manage content across many projects I maintain. I like the concept of a dead simple editor that connects to Github using oAuth and assists me in managing repositories of information.

I would like to see a similar app, but instead of markup and markdown it is for simple management of data, allowing me to:

  • Import / Export Spreadsheet
  • Import / Export CSV
  • Import / Export TSV
  • Import / Export from Google Spreadsheet

This application could provide a simple visual table editor for working with smaller data sets, allowing users to get the data in, via a preferred format as well as export in a similiar desired format. Allowing editing in a common table format in between import and export.

Even though I have been working as a database administrator for over 20 years, I have found myself working with simple JSON, CSV data sets that are stored in repositories lately. Having a dead simple, web-based data editor would go along way in supporting the open data movement.

Dateditor.io is available, and would make a nice addition to my Hacker Storytelling toolbox. I wish I had more time, I would build myself, but I am happy to help support someone else running with as an open source tool.

Hortonworks Community Connection (HCC) is an online collaboration destination for developers, DevOps, customers and partners to get answers to questions, collaborate on technical articles and share code examples from GitHub.  Join the discussion.
