    Until now, aggregate functions were only available using cqlsh (the CQL Shell). However, with the Stargate 1.0.25 release, they are now also available using the GraphQL API. In this blog entry, I’ll walk you through the process to get early access to this exciting new functionality in Stargate, and how to set up everything you need to test your own aggregate queries.

    It’s time to load some data into our table. The easiest way to do this is to download the file from my GitHub repository (another blog-unfriendly script) and execute it via the command:

    Next, we need to create our keyspace and table. Then we will load our test table with test data. While it is possible to do almost all of this using GraphQL, I did most of it using the REST API since that is the API.

  • libcurl

    A command line tool and library for transferring data with URL syntax, supporting DICT, FILE, FTP, FTPS, GOPHER, GOPHERS, HTTP, HTTPS, IMAP, IMAPS, LDAP, LDAPS, MQTT, POP3, POP3S, RTMP, RTMPS, RTSP, SCP, SFTP, SMB, SMBS, SMTP, SMTPS, TELNET, TFTP, WS and WSS. libcurl offers a myriad of powerful features

    This blog tutorial assumes that you already have Docker and curl installed and configured on your machine. Alternatively, if you have an Astra DB account (even with the free tier free) you can do your testing there.
