Subject Re: Integrate spark-shell into officially supported web ui/api plug-in? What do you think?
Date Fri, 27 Jun 2014 22:18:19 GMT
I am more interested to use Scala.js as the front-end and just use Spark as
the back-end.

I thought that would be more than simply a spark-shell on browser. Similar
to ipython that would allows user to interact with other plotting libraries
in the browser such as D3 etc.
