Sure, its read-only.
Sure, its focused on Strings.
But it was written in only 100 lines of code using Virgil's REST layer for Cassandra and includes all of ExtJS's goodness. (if you are into that kind of thing)
To accomodate the GUI, we added fetch capabilities the REST layer for both schema information and rows using key ranges. I'll detail those capabilities in a follow up post.
For instructions on how to access the GUI and to see what it looks like check out the wiki page.
Virgil now includes an elementary REST interface. (thanks to Dave Strauss @ Pantheon for his help defining the interface) It also includes simple SOLR integration and a GUI. Next up, map/reduce for the masses via REST. Stay tuned.
As always, comments and contributions welcome and appreciated.
