Pentaho Big Data Plugin

The Pentaho Big Data Plugin Project provides support for an ever-expanding Big Data community within the Pentaho ecosystem. It is a plugin for the Pentaho Kettle engine which can be used within Pentaho Data Integration (Kettle), Pentaho Reporting, and the Pentaho BI Platform.


The Pentaho Big Data Plugin is built with Apache Ant and uses Apache Ivy for dependency management. All you'll need to get started is Ant 1.7.0 or newer to build the project. The build scripts will download Ivy if you do not already have it installed.

$ git clone git://
$ cd big-data-plugin
$ ant

This will produce a plugin archive in dist/pentaho-big-data-plugin-${project.revision}.tar.gz (and .zip). This archive can then be extracted into your Pentaho Data Integration plugin directory.
