(Optional) Using VS Code with Python
You can use VS Code with Python.
Install the Python extension.
- With the Extension installed, once you open your first python file, you will be prompted to install pylint Linter.
VS Code opens a terminal and runs the code needed to install the linter. It's important to note that this is a remote terminal, running on an engine in Cloudera Data Science Workbench. It's the same as if you launched a terminal inside a running workbench.
If you want to run arbitrary Python code inside VS Code, open a Python file, select
some code, right click, and select Run Selection/Line in Python
You can also just hit Shift-Enter in the code editor window. This will open up a new terminal if there isn’t one and run the selected code. Since this is a remote session, you can run pyspark directly inside VS Code.For more complex code requirements, you can also use the Python Debugging feature in VS Code.
