Love Cassandra? Love REST?
Wish you could have both at the same time?
Now you can.

After much discussion, I'm happy to announce the birth of a new project, Virgil. The project will provide a GUI and a services layer on top of Cassandra, exposing data and services via REST.

Virgil already has a REST layer for CRUD operations against keyspaces, column families, and data. We hope to quickly add Pig/Hadoop support via REST as well as a thin, javascript-based GUI that uses the REST services.

How can you help nurture the baby?
Head over to Apache Extras,

Star the project, and then get involved.
Grab the source code and give it a try.
