CDH 5.7 includes a lot of changes (more than 1,500) to Hue, the Web UI that makes Apache Hadoop easier to use.

Thanks to Jonathan Natkins, a field engineer from StreamSets, for the guest post below about using StreamSets Data Collector—open source, GUI-driven ingest technology for developing and operating data pipelines with a minimum of code—and Cloudera Search and HUE to build a real-time search environment.

Cloudera Enterprise 5.5 improves the life of the admin through a deeper integration between HUE and Cloudera Manager, as well as a rebase on HUE 3.9.
Cloudera Enterprise 5.5 contains a number of improvements related to HUE (the open source GUI that makes Apache Hadoop easier to use), including easier setup for HUE HA, built-in activity monitoring for improved stability, and better security and reporting via Cloudera Navigator and Apache Sentry (incubating).
This post from the HUE team about using HUE (the open source web GUI for Apache Hadoop), Apache Spark, and SQL for analytics was initially published in the HUE project’s blog.
Apache Spark is getting popular and HUE contributors are working on making it accessible to even more users. Specifically, by creating a Web interface that allows anyone with a browser to type some Spark code and execute it.
Learn how to set up Hue, the open source GUI that makes Apache Hadoop easier to use, on your Mac.
You might have already all the prerequisites installed but we are going to show how to start from a fresh Yosemite (10.10) install and end up with running Hue on your Mac in almost no time!
We are going to be using the official Quickstart VM from Cloudera that already packs all the Apache Hadoop ecosystem components your Hue will talk to.
