while working with binary data format files - Apache Avro it would be handy to have some viewer/editor at least for QA. I tried protobuf editor which works great for protocol buffers and have some plugin for avro called avro editor. It works fine for simple avro schemas which doesn't contain unions. What is very limiting and for practical use cases not usable.
- should support all Avro data types (primitive and complex) - serve as data file viewer
- we are not interested in any avro RPC related features
- run on Windows or Linux OS
- GUI applicaiton (something similar to protobuf editor if posible)
One alternative is to use a avro tools and convert it to json and view json. We would like to remove the intermediate step if possible.
Does anybody knows some alternative?
