Building

You can build this project using maven:

mvn clean install -DskipTests

Running

The build produces a shaded Jar that can be run using the hadoop command:

hadoop jar parquet-cli-1.9.1-runtime.jar org.apache.parquet.cli.Main

For a shorter command-line invocation, add an alias to your shell like this:

alias parquet="hadoop jar /path/to/parquet-cli-1.9.1-runtime.jar org.apache.parquet.cli.Main --dollar-zero parquet"

Running without Hadoop

To run from the target directory instead of using the hadoop command, first copy the dependencies to a folder:

mvn dependency:copy-dependencies

Then, run the command-line and add target/dependencies/* to the classpath:

java -cp 'target/*:target/dependency/*' org.apache.parquet.cli.Main
