The DataSketches Library is organized into the following repository groups:
This repository has the core sketching classes, which are leveraged by some of the other repositories.
This repository has no external dependencies outside of the DataSketches/memory repository, Java and TestNG for unit tests. This code is versioned and the latest release can be obtained from Maven Central.

This is a new repository dedicated to sketches designed to be run in a mobile client, such as a cell phone. It is still in development and should be considered experimental.
This repository contains Hive UDFs and UDAFs for use within Hadoop grid enviornments. This code has dependencies on sketches-core as well as Hadoop and Hive.

This repository contains Pig User Defined Functions (UDF) for use within Hadoop grid environments. This code has dependencies on sketches-core as well as Hadoop and Pig. Users of this code are advised to use Maven to bring in all the required dependencies. This code is versioned and the latest release can be obtained from Maven Central.

|com.yahoo.sketches.pig.tuple||Pig UDFs for Tuple sketches|
This is a new repository dedicated to sketches for vector and matrix operations. It is still somewhat experimental.
This relatively new repository is for code that we use to characterize the accuracy and speed performance of the sketches in the library and is constantly being updated. Examples of the job command files used for various tests can be found in the src/main/resources directory. Some of these tests can run for hours depending on its configuration.
|Characterization Packages||Package Description|
|com.yahoo.sketches.characterization||Common functions and utilities|
|com.yahoo.sketches.characterization.hash||Hash function performance|
|com.yahoo.sketches.characterization.uniquecount||Performance of Theta and HLL sketches|
This repository is an experimental staging area for code that will eventually end up in another repository. This code is not versioned and not registered with Maven Central.
Demos, command-line access, characterization testing and other code not related to production deployment.
This code is offered “as is” and primarily as a reference so that users can understand how some of the performance characterization plots were obtained. This code has few unit tests, if any, and was never intended for production use. Nonetheless, some folks have found it useful. If you find it useful, go for it. This code is versioned and the latest release can be obtained from Maven Central.
|Sketches-misc Packages||Package Description|
|com.yahoo.sketches||Utility functions used by the sketches-misc packages|
|com.yahoo.sketches.cmd||Support for Command Line functions Being Redesigned|
|com.yahoo.sketches.demo||Simple demo for brute-force vs Theta and HLL sketches Will be superceded by Command Line functions|
|com.yahoo.sketches.quantiles||Utility for computing & printing space table for Quantiles Sketches (only in the test branch)|
|com.yahoo.sketches.sampling||Benchmarks and Entropy testing for sampling sketches|
This is the evolving C++ implementations of the same sketches that are available in Java. These implementations are binary compatible with their counterparts in Java. In other words, a sketch created and stored in C++ can be opened and read in Java and visa-versa.
This site also has our Python adaptors that basically wrap the C++ implementations, making the high performance C++ implementations available from Python.
This site provides the postgres-specific adaptors that wrap the C++ implementations making them available to the Postgres database users.
This is the parallel characterization repository with a parallel objective to the Java characterization repository.
This repository is an experimental staging area for C++ code that will eventually end up in another repository.
These repositories provide a command-line tool that provides access to the following sketches:
This tool can be installed from Homebrew.
This is the DataSketches.github.io web site, and is constantly being updated with new material and to be current with the GitHub master. This site is not versioned and not registered with Maven Central.
