  3. AWS Exceptions/Responses displayed to screen

    When reconfiguring clusters I exceeded the AWS instance limit and no error messages were returned. If AWS Exceptions could be returned and the reconfiguration terminated more quickly it would be appreciated.

    I've noted from a response that this might already be in the works.

    The markdown has been reimplemented and improved. The fonts have changed and improved. Furthermore, the rendering now fully happens on the client side. That is, you no longer need to be attached to a cluster for markdown changes/rendering to work.

  5. Collapse&expand code and output (charts, tables) separately

    Right now, you can collapse & expand only the entire commands. It would be great if you could collapse the code and the output tables and charts separately.

    Additionally, a collapse all would be cool.

    This way, you can easily switch the notebook between the "inner workings" and the "report" modes.

    I believe Zeppelin does it like this.

  7. Create Table: Add support for column headers in the first row

    I have a large CSV file with column headers in the first row. When I try to import it as a table all my columns are of type "STRING" and my first row contains headers.

    Would be good to be able to specify that first line in a text file contains column names.

  8. Create Table from CSV: Handle quoting of fields like strings

    CSV files often use quotes to protect embedded commas and the like.
    Please provide an option to do quote processing.

    See for example:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comma-separated_values#Basic_rules_and_examples

  9. Import data from other sources

    Support importing data from external databases, similar to the way one could import s3 buckets - I would personally love support for MongoDB and other NoSQL stores. I'd also consider making it easy to fetch data from Freebase etc.

  10. Notebook cells could be run using an icon since iPads cant send shift-enter

    Have an icon (like an exclamation mark?) with the other cell icons. This would run the cell. Can't run individual cells if I use the iPad to browse.

  11. Need IDE support

    We need IDE support (or at least support for syntax highlighting / auto-completion / auto-indentation) for usability and ease of development / test.

  12. Notebook improvements (multiple)

    . It is a little hard to tell where you are in re-running the cells of a notebook. iPython gives you numbers when a cell re-runs which is helpful.
    . Cell feedback is confusing as at times the progress bar reruns multiple times
    . Capability to comment entire cells with one click

    Many of the Jupyter keyboard shortcuts have been added and are now available in Databricks. You can figure out what the shortcuts are by clicking on the keyboard icon on the context-bar of any notebook.

  13. SSO with Google Apps

    For companies using Google Apps as their central user management, it would be cool if there was no need to create/maintain/delete separate accounts in Databricks cloud.

  17. Fine-grained access control for notebooks

    Version control is now available in the professional tier (Databricks 1.4.1). Please try it out and let us know what you think.

    Sorry about the earlier typo. Versioning is indeed available.

  19. Installation of custom libraries

    Be able to install custom libraries (in addition to just Java and Python libraries)

    We now support running a script on every node of a cluster when it’s launched. That script can then run arbitrary shell commands, e.g. download and install arbitrary libraries. The script has to be located in DBFS (Databricks FileSystem). Please contact a field engineer at Databricks for help to set this up.

  20. Support relative paths in %run

    Allow for relative paths to be used with %run execution of other notebooks
