yep, that's correct. The C++ client isn't able to be built on Windows and would require quite a bit of effort to port. For example, it makes heavy use of 'libev' which has poor support for Windows async IO.

Hi Chen,

As far as I'm aware this is not possible. The python client builds on top of the kudu client libraries and kudu can't be built on Windows.

Maybe someone else will have a creative workaround, but I can't think of one.

Thanks,
Jordan

Hi,


I am a tester and new to use kudu. I want to connect kudu with python on windows, so that I can select the data.


Is there any guide about this?


I install kudu-python, but meet a problem. What should I do next?


>pip install kudu-python
Collecting kudu-python
  Using cached kudu-python-1.2.0.tar.gz
    Complete output from command python setup.py egg_info:
    Cannot find installed kudu client.

Command "python setup.py egg_info" failed with error code 1 in c:\users\rani\app
