Awesome Spark Awesome

A curated list of awesome Apache Spark packages and resources.

Apache Spark is an open-source cluster-computing framework. Originally developed at the University of California, Berkeley's AMPLab, the Spark codebase was later donated to the Apache Software Foundation, which has maintained it since. Spark provides an interface for programming entire clusters with implicit data parallelism and fault-tolerance (Wikipedia 2017).

Users of Apache Spark may choose between different the Python, R, Scala and Java programming languages to interface with the Apache Spark APIs.



Language Bindings

Notebooks and IDEs

  • almond - A scala kernel for Jupyter.
  • Apache Zeppelin - Web-based notebook that enables interactive data analytics with plugable backends, integrated plotting, and extensive Spark support out-of-the-box.
  • Polynote - Polynote: an IDE-inspired polyglot notebook. It supports mixing multiple languages in one notebook, and sharing data between them seamlessly. It encourages reproducible notebooks with its immutable data model. Originating from Netflix.
  • Spark Notebookstars3.1k - Scalable and stable Scala and Spark focused notebook bridging the gap between JVM and Data Scientists (incl. extendable, typesafe and reactive charts).
  • sparkmagicstars1.2k - Jupyter magics and kernels for working with remote Spark clusters, for interactively working with remote Spark clusters through Livystars990, in Jupyter notebooks.

General Purpose Libraries

SQL Data Sources

SparkSQL has serveral built-in Data Sources for files. These include csv, json, parquet, orc, and avro. It also supports JDBC databases as well as Apache Hive. Additional data sources can be added by including the packages listed below, or writing your own.


  • Delta Lakestars5.3k - Storage layer with ACID transactions.
  • lakeFS - Integration with the lakeFS atomic versioned storage layer.



Time Series Analytics

Graph Processing

  • Mazerunnerstars377 - Graph analytics platform on top of Neo4j and GraphX.
  • GraphFramesstars887 - Data frame based graph API.
  • neo4j-spark-connectorstars293 - Bolt protocol based, Neo4j Connector with RDD, DataFrame and GraphX / GraphFrames support.
  • SparklingGraph - Library extending GraphX features with multiple functionalities useful in graph analytics (measures, generators, link prediction etc.).

Machine Learning Extension


  • Livystars711 - REST server with extensive language support (Python, R, Scala), ability to maintain interactive sessions and object sharing.
  • spark-jobserverstars2.8k - Simple Spark as a Service which supports objects sharing using so called named objects. JVM only.
  • Miststars318 - Service for exposing Spark analytical jobs and machine learning models as realtime, batch or reactive web services.
  • Apache Toreestars702 - IPython protocol based middleware for interactive applications.
  • Apache Kyuubistars1.2k - A distributed multi-tenant JDBC server for large-scale data processing and analytics, built on top of Apache Spark.



Natural Language Processing


  • Apache Bahir - Collection of the streaming connectors excluded from Spark 2.0 (Akka, MQTT, Twitter. ZeroMQ).


  • Apache Beam - Unified data processing engine supporting both batch and streaming applications. Apache Spark is one of the supported execution environments.
  • Blazestars3.1k - Interface for querying larger than memory datasets using Pandas-like syntax. It supports both Spark DataFrames and RDDs.
  • Koalasstars3.2k - Pandas DataFrame API on top of Apache Spark.

Projects Using Spark

  • Oryx 2stars1.8k - Lambda architecture platform built on Apache Spark and Apache Kafka with specialization for real-time large scale machine learning.
  • Photon MLstars790 - A machine learning library supporting classical Generalized Mixed Model and Generalized Additive Mixed Effect Model.
  • PredictionIO - Machine Learning server for developers and data scientists to build and deploy predictive applications in a fraction of the time.
  • Crossdatastars168 - Data integration platform with extended DataSource API and multi-user environment.
