Splunk Announces New Development Tools


The Splunk developer selection has been expanded this week with new SDKs for Java and Python. Splunk is aiming to make it easier for developers to customize and extend Splunk Enterprise with these releases, which follow the release of Splunk SDK for JavaScript for Splunk Enterprise 5.

NOTE: The Splunk SDK for PHP is in public preview.

"Our mission at Splunk is to lower the barriers for organizations to gain operational intelligence from machine data," said Paul Sanford, general manager of developer platform, Splunk. "We want to empower developers to build big data applications on the Splunk platform and to understand that you don't need large-scale development efforts to get big value."

"Building a developer community around a software platform requires a strong commitment to a low barrier to entry. This applies to every step of the adoption process, from download to documentation to development. Splunk's focus on SDKs for some of the most popular programming languages, with underlying REST-based APIs, supports its commitment to enabling software developers to easily build applications," said Donnie Berkholz, Ph.D., IT industry analyst, RedMonk.

The Splunk SDKs for Java, JavaScript, PHP, and Python are built on a documented REST API and include code samples, resources, and developer tools. Benefits include the ability to discover "a higher level of operational intelligence" by letting developers create applications to index, search, visualize, and analyze data using Splunk software and any other application.
