Beam interpreter for Apache Zeppelin


Apache Beam is an open source unified platform for data processing pipelines. A pipeline can be build using one of the Beam SDKs. The execution of the pipeline is done by different Runners. Currently, Beam supports Apache Flink Runner, Apache Spark Runner, and Google Dataflow Runner.

How to use

Basically, you can write normal Beam java code where you can determine the Runner. You should write the main method inside a class becuase the interpreter invoke this main to execute the pipeline. Unlike Zeppelin normal pattern, each paragraph is considered as a separate job, there isn't any relation to any other paragraph.

The following is a demonstration of a word count example with data represented in array of strings But it can read data from files by replacing Create.of(SENTENCES).withCoder(StringUtf8Coder.of()) with TextIO.Read.from("path/to/filename.txt")
