Hue is a very handy SQL assistant for Hadoop, where you can easily run Hive or Impala query.
I was asked if it was possible to have thousands separator in the display of the query results. There is no option in Hue, I thought I could get away with Django environment variables but either it’s not possible, or I got it wrong.
In any case, it did not feel great. You could argue that Hue is a display tool so it’s OK to format the output, but it would be for all users, and they might not all want that…
