Hue, http://gethue.com, is an open source UI for Hadoop and its satellite projects.

It makes the whole platform (e.g. HDFS, MapReduce, Hive, Oozie, Pig, Impala, Solr, Sqoop, ZooKeeper…) easy to use and accessible from your browser (e.g. upload files to HDFS, send Hive queries from a Web editor, build workflows with Drag & Drop… all within a single app).
