Apache Zeppelin (incubating) is an Apache2 License Software. Any contribution to Zeppelin (Source code, Documents, Image, Website) means you agree license all your contributions as Apache2 License.
Here are some things you will need to do to build and test Zeppelin.
Zeppelin uses Git for it's SCM system. Hosted by github.com.
https://github.com/apache/incubator-zeppelin You'll need git client installed in your development machine.
You are free to use whatever IDE you prefer, or your favorite command line editor.
To build the code, install Oracle Java 7 Apache Maven
First of all, you need the Zeppelin source code. The official location for Zeppelin is https://github.com/apache/incubator-zeppelin
Get the source code on your development machine using git.
git clone https://github.com/apache/incubator-zeppelin.git zeppelin
You may also want to develop against a specific release. For example, for branch-0.1
git clone -b branch-0.1 https://github.com/apache/incubator-zeppelin.git zeppelin
If you want not only build Zeppelin but also make changes, then you need to fork Zeppelin repository and make pull request.
To skip test
mvn install -DskipTests
To build with specific spark / hadoop version
mvn install -Dspark.version=1.0.1 -Dhadoop.version=2.2.0
cd zeppelin-server HADOOP_HOME=YOUR_HADOOP_HOME JAVA_HOME=YOUR_JAVA_HOME mvn exec:java -Dexec.mainClass="org.apache.zeppelin.server.ZeppelinServer" -Dexec.args=""
NOTE: make sure you first run
mvn clean install -DskipTests on your zeppelin root directory otherwise your server build will fail to find the required dependencies in the local repro
or use daemon script
Server will be run on http://localhost:8080
Some portions of the Zeppelin code are generated by Thrift. For most Zeppelin changes, you don't need to worry about this, but if you modify any of the Thrift IDL files (e.g. zeppelin-interpreter/src/main/thrift/*.thrift), then you also need to regenerate these files and submit their updated version as part of your patch.
To regenerate the code, install thrift-0.9.0 and change directory into Zeppelin source directory. and then run following command
thrift -out zeppelin-interpreter/src/main/java/ --gen java zeppelin-interpreter/src/main/thrift/RemoteInterpreterService.thrift
Zeppelin manages its issues in Jira. https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ZEPPELIN
