The editor keeps getting better. Below you can read about a selection of recent major improvements.
Autocomplete popup revamp
Like in a regular code editor, the autocomplete is split in two parts. This is to prevent hangs while fetching the metadata of the current table or columns and to display more context information like the comments, type of objects, and their full names.
Create table wizard
If you’ve ever struggled with creating new SQL tables from files, you’ll be happy to learn that this is now much easier. With the latest Hue release, you can now create these in an ad hoc way and thereby expedite self-service analytics. The wizard has been revamped to two simple steps and also offers more formats. Now users just need to:
- Select a file
- Select the type of table
And that’s it! Files can be dragged & dropped, selected from HDFS or S3 (if configured), and their formats are automatically detected. The wizard also assists when performing advanced functionalities like table partitioning, Kudu tables, and nested types.
