Basic Display System in Apache Zeppelin


By default, Apache Zeppelin prints interpreter response as a plain text using text display system.

You can explicitly say you're using text display system.


With %html directive, Zeppelin treats your output as HTML

Mathematical expressions

HTML display system automatically formats mathematical expression using MathJax. You can use \\( INLINE EXPRESSION \\) and $$ EXPRESSION $$ to format. For example


If you have data that row separated by \n (newline) and column separated by \t (tab) with first row as header row, for example

You can simply use %table display system to leverage Zeppelin's built in visualization.

If table contents start with %html, it is interpreted as an HTML.

Note : Display system is backend independent.
