Cloudera Data Science Workbench allows you to install packages or libraries in addition to pre-installed packages that are required by your projects just as you would on your local computer.

You can provide additional packages, such as Python libraries, through the following methods:
  • Directly installing packages within projects
  • Creating a custom engine with the required packages
  • Mounting a path from the host which contains additional packages
One method may be more appropriate for your deployment than another method. For more information about each option, see Managing Engine Dependencies.
