Install python interpreter in CDP Public Cloud

New Contributor

Hi all, 

We've just installed CDP Public Cloud(over azure) and we've created a data engineering hub. Now we want to use python interpreter inside zeppelin. Could you please help me in order to add/create the python interpreter?

You can take a look in:


Basically, needs to configure in the nodes the python version that you want and then the right configs (like path) in Zeppelin.

I'm confused. People from cloudera told me in the slack channel that is not possible to add python as a interpreter.


Could you please clarify?

Hi @fedesardo 


As per link that I've provided Python is supported via Livy


  • Livy (supports Spark, Spark SQL, PySpark, PySpark3, and SparkR)



Note: PySpark and associated libraries require Python version 2.7 or later, or Python version 3.4 or later, installed on all nodes.


So you can use Python via this, indeed just Python interpreter isn't supported, but you can use it in the platform in this way.


Hope this helps.
