Narasimha Gopal, Infosys, presents at the 2016 HPCC Systems Engineering Summit Community Day.
The ECL builder is an online playground for HPCC built on web technologies. It provides a convenient interface for users to easily browse and select logical files and to then run various ECL ACTIONS on them in order to generate the necessary reports/analytics. While this is extremely useful for users who are not familiar with ECL, it also helps ECL developers be more productive as the ECL builder can quickly generate code for various ECL ACTIONS like reading datasets, performing joins, running cross tab reports, sorts etc. The ECL builder allows creation of new definitions or actions by reusing one or more existing definitions so as to chain them together to generate the necessary output. In fact, it’s possible to write a moderately complex ECL program using the ECL builder without having to manually write any code.
The ECL builder also features syntax highlighting and an enhanced interface for output visualization and output post-processing. One of the very useful post processing features provided by the editor is the ability to generate pivot tables from the generated outputs.
The ECL builder is currently being used on various projects where it is used by developers as well as by the business analysts who are now able to generate the necessary reports and analytics without needing any assistance from the development team.
