Lightning-fast unified analytics engine

This page tracks external software projects that supplement Apache Spark and add to its ecosystem.

To add a project, open a pull request against the spark-website repository. Add an entry to this markdown file, then run jekyll build to generate the HTML too. Include both in your pull request. See the README in this repo for more information.

Note that all project and product names should follow trademark guidelines. is an external, community-managed list of third-party libraries, add-ons, and applications that work with Apache Spark. You can add a package as long as you have a GitHub repository.
