Looking for good tutorial on writing Erlang Map/Reduce queries?

Hi Derek,

The best place to start is probably the mapreduce functions officially included in Riak (https://github.com/basho/riak_kv/blob/master/src/riak_kv_mapreduce.erl) if you have not already found these. These do however not make use of arguments. If you are looking for an example of how arguments can be used, you could look at a little library containing map phase functions that I wrote some time back. In these I accept JSON documents as arguments and use this to control processing. The library is available here: https://github.com/whitenode/riak_mapreduce_utils

Best regards,

The Riak Handbook has one example that I've been going with, which is good for a bare-minimum set of requirements for how to write these, but doesn't really provide enough info to know what kinds of things are available to me, and some common patterns to apply in writing my own Maps, how to pass in parameters, etc etc.
