This tutorial describes the formatting conventions used in the Sparkour recipes. There is no hands-on work involved.
Sparkour recipes employ a few formatting conventions to make instructions clearer:
Commands to be typed at the Linux command line are bash-compatible and displayed in a syntax-highlighted box. The command prompt is not shown:
Code samples employ the Java, Python, R, or Scala programming languages. If the example has been translated into multiple languages, a separate box appears for each employed language. These boxes show code in Python by default, but you can change the language and use the 💾 icon to save your preferred language.
Code intended for the Spark interactive shells includes the shell prompt at the beginning of each line:
You should now understand how the material in the remaining tutorials and recipes is presented. In the next tutorial, Tutorial #1: Apache Spark in a Nutshell, we learn more about Apache Spark.
Spot any inconsistencies or errors? See things that could be explained better or code that could be written more idiomatically? If so, please help me improve Sparkour by opening a ticket on the Issues page. You can also discuss this recipe with others in the Sparkour community on the Discussion page.
