Set the SPARK_HOME environment variable

Set the SPARK_HOME environment variable. This slightly speeds up some operations, including the connection time.

spark_home_set(path = NULL, verbose = getOption("sparklyr.verbose",
  is.null(path)))

Arguments

path

A string containing the path to the installation location of Spark. If NULL, the path to the most latest Spark/Hadoop versions is used.

verbose

Logical. Should the function explain what is it doing?

Value

The function is mostly invoked for the side-effect of setting the SPARK_HOME environment variable. It also returns TRUE if the environment was successfully set, and FALSE otherwise.

Examples

# NOT RUN {
# Not run due to side-effects
spark_home_set()
# }
