The project looks very interesting. Can you provide a more detailed description about the fm script?

  1. The general workflow
  2. The main ideas

I tried the command fm init but I received a lot of authentication errors from ssh.

@arademaker I just got this running and working. If already know the basics of mapreduce I suggest you have a look at the tests for up to date general workflow. The examples in wiki and on website are broken (#6, #7). Also, #8 might help.

Concerning the authentication errors you are getting: You need to create an SSH key and add it to your .ssh/authorized_keys on your slaves/workers. In my case I was testing this out on a single machine. I made sure I could connect to myself without password by issuing ssh localhost.

Let me know if I can be of any futher help, or close this issue if it's no longer of interest.
