GraphFrames: DataFrame-based Graphs
This is a package for DataFrame-based graphs on top of Apache Spark. Users can write highly expressive queries by leveraging the DataFrame API, combined with a new API for motif finding. The user also benefits from DataFrame performance optimizations within the Spark SQL engine.
You can find user guide and API docs at https://graphframes.github.io/graphframes.
Building and running unit tests
To compile this project, run
build/sbt assembly from the project home directory.
This will also run the Scala unit tests.
To run the Python unit tests, run the
run-tests.sh script from the
You will need to set
SPARK_HOME to your local Spark installation directory.
Spark version compatibility
This project is compatible with Spark 2.4+. However, significant speed improvements have been made to DataFrames in more recent versions of Spark, so you may see speedups from using the latest Spark version.
GraphFrames is collaborative effort among UC Berkeley, MIT, and Databricks. We welcome open source contributions as well!
