python client on Os X streaming on Hortonworks sandbox
I would like to write mapreduce code – ideally using python – on my apple mac to streaming it on the Hortonworks sandbox.
Ideally my development setup is using my Apple Mac python environment & an hadoop VM sandbox (later to be expanded to a cluster).
While there are many description on how to connect or stream code from within a node of the hadoop cluster or sandbox (e.g. from the NameNode etc.), I am unclear on what to do to connect just as a client.
E.g. I assume I need to install some hadoop client libraries on my OsX to talk to the Sandbox HDFS? Where do I get these libraries from?
How do I install them?
What type of python package works best?
What IP address should I use to stream my python code?
Any help – and any link to a tutorial covering this – would be great!
