A proxied version of the Spark UI can be accessed at http://localhost:8888/spark.

## Installation

To install, simply run:

` pip install jupyter-spark jupyter serverextension enable --py jupyter_spark jupyter nbextension install --py jupyter_spark jupyter nbextension enable --py jupyter_spark `

You may also have to enable the widgetsnbextension extension if it hasn’t been enabled before (check by running jupyter nbextension list):

` jupyter nbextension enable --py widgetsnbextension `

To double-check if the extension was correctly installed run:

` jupyter nbextension list jupyter serverextension list `

Pleaes feel free to install [lxml]( as well to improve performance of the server side communication to Spark using your favorite package manager, e.g.:

` pip install lxml `

For development and testing, clone the project and run from a shell in the project’s root directory:

` pip install -e . jupyter serverextension enable --py jupyter_spark jupyter nbextension install --py jupyter_spark jupyter nbextension enable --py jupyter_spark `

To uninstall the extension run:

` jupyter serverextension disable --py jupyter_spark jupyter nbextension disable --py jupyter_spark jupyter nbextension uninstall --py jupyter_spark pip uninstall jupyter-spark `

## Configuration

To change the URL of the Spark API that the job metadata is fetched from override the Spark.url config value, e.g. on the command line:

` jupyter notebook --Spark.url="http://localhost:4040" `
