Red Sqirl on top of a HDP Cluster
Full Description

Red Sqirl Hortonworks HDP Container

The Red Sqird Hortonworks HDP Container docker image is a Red Sqirl web application installed on top of a single node HDP cluster.

What is this image

In this image, we install HDP from scratch and add Red Sqirl on top of it.

NB: The start up is longer than the cloudera image, so if you want the fastest path to Red Sqirl check this project.

To Run

docker run -i -t -p 8842:8842  redsqirl/hortonworks-hdp /usr/local/bin/


  • Red Sqirl 8842
  • Ambari 8080
  • Yarn 8088

Set Up

  1. Install docker
  2. Get the image: docker pull redsqirl/hortonworks-hdp
  3. Create the image: docker run -i -t -p 8842:8842 redsqirl/hortonworks-hdp /usr/local/bin/
  4. Execute the script: /usr/local/bin/
  5. When it says installation complete, type: Ctrl-Z bg then Ctrl-L or clear
  6. Wait that hadoop is online, it could take several minutes, the command hadoop fs -ls / should execute. While everything is being installed you will get "command not found" then "ConnectionRefused" errors.
