Subject [jira] [Commented] (SPARK-15014) Spark Shell could use Ammonite Shell
Date Tue, 24 May 2016 23:04:12 GMT


Jakob Odersky commented on SPARK-15014:

spark-shell is a very thin wrapper around the standard scala repl (with spark dependencies).
It does some configuration and exposes a spark context and some imports, almost everything
is implemented in these two files: 


I don't know much about ammonite, but as a workaround could you use spark as a standalone
program in your shell? Just add the spark dependencies and create a spark context manually.
