Full Description


A debian:jessie based Spark and Zeppelin Docker container.

This image is large and opinionated. It contains:

A prior build of dylanmei/zeppelin:latest contained Spark 1.6.0, Python 2.7, and all of the stock interpreters. That image is still available as dylanmei/zeppelin:0.6.0-stable.

simple usage

To start Zeppelin pull the latest image and run the container:

docker pull dylanmei/zeppelin
docker run --rm -p 8080:8080 dylanmei/zeppelin

Zeppelin will be running at http://${YOUR_DOCKER_HOST}:8080.

complex usage

You can use docker-compose to easily run Zeppelin in more complex configurations. See this project's ./examples directory for examples of using Zeppelin with docker-compose to :

  • read and write from local data files
  • read and write documents in ElasticSearch


The Docker onbuild container is still a part of this project, but I have no plans to keep it updated. See the onbuild directory to view its Dockerfile.

To use it, create a new Dockerfile based on dylanmei/zeppelin:onbuild and supply a new, executable file in the same directory. It will override the base one via Docker's ONBUILD instruction.

The steps, expressed here as a script, can be as simple as:

cat > ./Dockerfile <<DOCKERFILE
FROM dylanmei/zeppelin:onbuild


cat > ./ <<INSTALL
git pull
mvn clean package -DskipTests \
  -Pspark-1.5 \
  -Dspark.version=1.5.2 \
  -Phadoop-2.2 \
  -Dhadoop.version=2.0.0-cdh4.2.0 \

docker build -t my_zeppelin .

Hi does this build connect to a hive database I am trying create a new hive context and the following error is being given:
error: object hive is not a member of package org.apache.spark.sql

I am using the following code:
val hiveContext =new org.apache.spark.sql.hive.HiveContext(sc)

Running on Kitematic (OS X), yet when I go to localhost:8080, I get a "Site can't be reached error". Any ideas?

First of all great job! you really made my life easier with this container.
Yet I need to use Cassandra interpreter in Zeppelin. I have tried using the dynamic loading API but with no success.
I am posting at
the following body
"artifact": "org.apache.zeppelin:zeppelin-cassandra_2.11:0.6.1",
"className": "org.apache.zeppelin.cassandra.CassandraInterpreter",
but the server returns a 500 Server Error.
I think it might be because the credentials are missing but I do not know them, can you help me?
