Spark Shell

By May 16, 2018

Spark has an easy-to-use interactive shell that can be used to learn API and also analyze data interactively. Below is a simple example written in Scala. You can use any text file that you have:

spark-shell --master yarn --queue <your_queue>
scala> val textFile = spark.read.textFile("test.txt")
scala> textFile.count()
scala> textFile.first()
//Count how many lines contain the word "words"
//You can replace "words" with any word you'd like
scala> textFile.filter(line => line.contains("words")).count()
