The Archives Unleashed Toolkit
The toolkit grew out of a previous project called Warcbase. The following article provides a nice overview, much of which is still relevant:

If you have Apache Spark ready to go, it's as easy as:
$ spark-shell --packages "io.archivesunleashed:aut:0.17.0"
A little less easy
You can download the latest release here and include it like so:
$ spark-shell --jars /path/to/aut-0.17.0-fatjar.jar"
Even less easy
Build it yourself as per the instructions below:
Clone the repo:
$ git clone http://github.com/archivesunleashed/aut.git
You can then build The Archives Unleashed Toolkit.
$ mvn clean install
For the impatient, to skip tests:
$ mvn clean install -DskipTests
I want to use Docker!
Ok! Take a quick spin with
aut with Docker.
Documentation! Or, how do I use this?
Once built or downloaded, you can follow the basic set of recipes and tutorials here.
