1. Quantum requesting interface

Quantum

To retrieve and analyze data in the Continuum storage platform you use the WarpScript data manipulation language.

You can either send your WarpScripts directly to Warp 10 API or use the Quantum requesting interface. This tutorial aims to teach you to use Quantum to make some simple manipulation of sample data in the platform.

Quantum requesting interface

Warp 10's Quantum is a web application aiming to allow users to interact with the platform in an user-friendly way, offering an alternative to command-line interaction.

A standalone version of Quantum is packaged with the Warp 10 distribution or in the Docker image, listening on the port 8081. In a Linux system (with binding between Warp 10 API address and the host) you can access Quantum at 127.0.0.1:8081. In Mac OS or Windows, there is no binding between Warp 10 API address and the host, you need to replace 127.0.0.1 by the real IP address of the container as explained in the precedent section.

Quantum has three main functions:

  • WarpScript: allows to interactively write your WarpScript, send it to a Warp 10 platform, get the response and done some plotting of the resulting stack

    Quantum - WarpScript

  • Update: used to send data to the platform, as an alternative to the command-line

    Quantum - Update

  • Delete: used to erase data from the platform, as an alternative to the command-line

    Quantum - Delete
