python interface to local and distributed multi-dimensional arrays

The goal of bolt is to support array manipulation and computation whether data are small, medium, or very, very large, through a common and familiar ndarray interface. The core is 100% Python. Currently backed by numpy (local) or spark (distributed) and will expand to others in the future.

Bolt supports Python 2.7+ and Python 3.4+. The core library is 100% Python, the only primary requirement is numpy, and for spark functionality it requires 1.4+ which can be obtained here.
