Tools for accessing Hive Metastore over thrift API.
The repository provides a set of tools for accessing Hive Metastore (HMS) directly using its Thrift interface rather then going via beeline. It can be use to explore and troubleshoot HMS and to develop other scripts and tools that need to access it.
None of these tools work in kerberos-enabled cluster.
You should consider using Java-based toolkit if you need support for Kerberos.
Make sure that you have an up-to-date GO environment. Currently
Go 1.11 or higher is required.
On MacOS this can be as easy as running
brew install go
go get -u github.com/akolb1/gometastore/...
This command will install tools in
