Autocompleter For Hue

The Hue team shows off their new SQL editor’s autocomplete capabilities:

We’ve fine-tuned the live autocompletion for a better experience and we’ve introduced some options under the editor settings where you can turn off live autocompletion or disable the autocompleter altogether (if you’re adventurous). To access these settings open the editor and focus on the code area, press CTRL + , (or on Mac CMD + ,) and the settings will appear.

The autocompleter talks to the backend to get data for tables and databases etc. by default it will timeout after 5 seconds but once it has been fetched it’s cached for the next time around. The timeout can be adjusted in the Hue server configuration.

I haven’t used Hue in a while, but that’s a nice feature.  Just don’t use ANSI-89 syntax like in that first example…
