This is the Apache Drill front-end, a Web application that acts as a user interface to issue queries against a back-end. This software is licensed under the Apache License, Version 2.0. If you have any questions, ping Michael Hausenblas.
Note that all information about projects and data sources is stored locally (in your browser) using HTML5 localStorage. So, if you're unsure if your browser supports this, you might want to check it first.
To start using Apache Drill, you first want to configure the back-end and then create a project on the right hand side or, if you're new to Drill, take a guided tour using some example data first. If you don't have the Dummy Drill back-end running locally, change the address to
http://srvgal85.deri.ie/apache-drill/, using the configure button below.
For example, try the following queries:
created:[2012-10-13T17:29:48Z TO 2012-10-13:17:29:48Z], or simply
Note: you can also execute the query by hitting ENTER while having the SHIFT key pressed.
Projects are a collection of datasets, for example grouped thematically or by the original data publisher. A query is executed against all active data sources across all projects.
