Zeppelin interpreter concept allows any language/data-processing-backend to be plugged into Zeppelin. Current languages included in the Zeppelin interpreter are: Scala(with Apache Spark), SparkSQL, Markdown and Shell.

Adding new language-backend is really simple. Learn how to write a zeppelin interpreter.


Apache Spark integration

Zeppelin provides built-in Apache Spark integration. You don't need to build a separate module, plugin or library for it.

Zeppelin's Spark integration provides

  • Automatic SparkContext and SQLContext injection
  • Runtime jar dependency loading from local filesystem or maven repository. Learn more about dependency loader.
  • Canceling job and displaying its progress


Data visualization

Some basic charts are already included in Zeppelin. Visualizations are not limited to SparkSQL's query, any output from any language backend can be recognized and visualized.

Learn more about Zeppelin's Display system.


Dynamic forms

Zeppelin can dynamically create some input forms into your notebook.

Collaboration

Notebook URL can be shared among collaborators. Zeppelin can then broadcast any changes in realtime, just like the collaboration in Google docs.


Publish

Zeppelin provides an URL to display the result only, that page does not include Zeppelin's menu and buttons. This way, you can easily embed it as an iframe inside of your website.
