Plugin cannot find pyspark

Plugin cannot find pyspark

I built the dedicated code environment for the plug in and included pyspark in the plugin's code-env/python/spec/requirements.txt file and I still get the error below when trying to run import pyspark.  

Installing a recent version of pandas in a plugin's code environment is a kludge: you have to include "corePackagesSet": "PANDAS13" in the desc.json file or the whole code-environment build fails.

Do you have to implement some similar kludge to get the pyspark package installed in the plugin's code environment?

 

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "check_spark_run.py", line 4, in <module>
    from pyspark.sql import SparkSession
ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'pyspark'

Operating system used: centos

There is a similar kludge.  You have to include "kind": "PYSPARK", in the plugin's recipe.json file.  

I was not able to find this documented anywhere.  

Also, I was hoping to start Spark from the shell with spark-submit, or a python script file, but doing this causes a bunch of other errors.  

Regarding the ModuleNotFound error, I fixed that by executing the python executable that is in the plugin's /bin/ directory.  Calling python directly only executes the Design Node's python which may not have the libraries you built in the plugins code environment.
