The Zeppelin and Spark notebook environment

Apache Zeppelin notebooks run on kernels and Spark engines.

Apache Zeppelin supports many interpreters such as Scala, Python, and R. The Spark interpreter and Livy interpreter can also be set up to connect to a designated Spark or Livy service.

Paragraphs in a notebook can alternate between Scala, Python and R code by specifying an interpreter before each code block:

Interpreter Language
%spark Scala
%spark.pyspark Python
%spark.r R

Tip: If a Zeppelin notebook loads a blank page, refresh the page to load the notebook properly.
