Active Admin vs Apache Drill: What are the differences?

Developers describe Active Admin as "The administration framework for Ruby on Rails applications". Active Admin is a Ruby on Rails framework for creating elegant backends for website administration. On the other hand, Apache Drill is detailed as "Schema-Free SQL Query Engine for Hadoop and NoSQL". Apache Drill is a distributed MPP query layer that supports SQL and alternative query languages against NoSQL and Hadoop data storage systems. It was inspired in part by Google's Dremel.

Active Admin and Apache Drill can be primarily classified as "Database" tools.

Some of the features offered by Active Admin are:

  • Global Navigation
  • Scopes
  • Index Styles

On the other hand, Apache Drill provides the following key features:

  • Low-latency SQL queries
  • Dynamic queries on self-describing data in files (such as JSON, Parquet, text) and MapR-DB/HBase tables, without requiring metadata definitions in the Hive metastore.
  • ANSI SQL

"Customizable" is the primary reason why developers consider Active Admin over the competitors, whereas "NoSQL and Hadoop" was stated as the key factor in picking Apache Drill.

Active Admin is an open source tool with 8.51K GitHub stars and 3.01K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Active Admin's open source repository on GitHub.
