Build Status

An open-source client library for sending requests to Apache Druid from applications written in Elixir. The project uses HTTPoison as an HTTP client for sending queries.

Getting Started

Add Panoramix as a dependency to your project.

defp deps do
    {:panoramix, ">= 0.12.0 and < 1.0.0"}


Panoramix requires a Druid Broker profile to be defined in the configuration of your application.

config :panoramix,
  request_timeout: 120_000,
  query_priority:  0,
  broker_profiles: [
    default: [
      base_url:       "https://druid-broker-host:9088",
      cacertfile:     "path/to/druid-certificate.crt",
      http_username:  "username",
      http_password:  "password"
  httpoison_module: HTTPoison
  • request_timeout: Query timeout in millis to be used in Context of all Druid queries.
  • query_priority: Priority to be used in Context of all Druid queries.
  • httpoison_module: Module to call when making HTTP requests. Defaults to HTTPoison if not specified, but you can provide a custom wrapper module if you wish. See HTTPoison.Base for examples.

The cacertfile option in the broker profile names a file that contains the CA certificate for the Druid broker. Alternatively you can specify the certificate as a string in PEM format (starting with -----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----) in the cacert option.


Build a query like this:

use Panoramix

q = from "my_datasource",
      query_type: "timeseries",
      intervals: ["2019-03-01T00:00:00+00:00/2019-03-04T00:00:00+00:00"],
      granularity: :day,
      filter: == "bar",
       aggregations: [event_count: count(), 
                      unique_id_count: hyperUnique(:user_unique)]  

And then send it:

Panoramix.post_query(q, :default)

Where :default is a configuration profile pointing to your Druid server.

The default value for the profile argument is :default, so if you only need a single configuration you can omit it:


Response example:

     "result" => %{
       "event_count" => 7544,
       "unique_id_count" => 43.18210933535
     "timestamp" => "2019-03-01T00:00:00.000Z"
     "result" => %{
       "event_count" => 1051,
       "unique_id_count" => 104.02052398847
     "timestamp" => "2019-03-02T00:00:00.000Z"
     "result" => %{
       "event_count" => 4591,
       "unique_id_count" => 79.19885795313
     "timestamp" => "2019-03-03T00:00:00.000Z"

To make a nested query, pass a map of the form %{type: :query, query: inner_query} as data source. For example:

use Panoramix

inner_query = from "my_datasource",
                query_type: "topN",
                intervals: ["2019-03-01T00:00:00+00:00/2019-03-04T00:00:00+00:00"],
                granularity: :day,
                aggregations: [event_count: count()],
                dimension: "foo",
                metric: "event_count",
                threshold: 100
q = from %{type: :query, query: inner_query},
      query_type: "timeseries",
      intervals: ["2019-03-01T00:00:00+00:00/2019-03-04T00:00:00+00:00"],
      granularity: :day,
      aggregations: [foo_count: count(),
                     event_count_sum: longSum(:event_count)],
      post_aggregations: [mean_events_per_foo: aggregations.event_count_sum / aggregations.foo_count]

To make a join query, pass a map of the form %{type: :join, left: left, right: right, joinType: :INNER | :LEFT, rightPrefix: "prefix_", condition: "condition"}. Both the left and the right side can be a nested query as above, %{type: :query, query: inner_query}, which will be expanded. Other join sources will be passed to Druid unchanged. For example:

use Panoramix

from %{type: :join,
       left: "sales",
       right: %{type: :lookup, lookup: "store_to_country"},
       rightPrefix: "r.",
       condition: "store == \"r.k\"",
       joinType: :INNER},
  query_type: "groupBy",
  intervals: ["0000/3000"],
  granularity: "all",
  dimensions: [%{type: "default", outputName: "country", dimension: "r.v"}],
  aggregations: [country_revenue: longSum(:revenue)]

You can also build a JSON query yourself by passing it as a map to post_query:

Panoramix.post_query(%{queryType: "timeBoundary", dataSource: "my_datasource"})


You can check correctness of your configuration by requesting status from Druid Broker. A successfull response will look like this.

iex(1)> Panoramix.status(:default)
   "memory" => %{...},
   "modules" => [...],
   "version" => "0.13.0"
