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?
