Welcome to Apache Mahout!

The Apache Mahout™ project's goal is to build an environment for quickly creating scalable performant machine learning applications.

For additional information about Mahout, visit the Mahout Home Page

####Setting up your Environment Whether you are using Mahout‘s Shell, running command line jobs or using it as a library to build your own apps you’ll need to setup several environment variables. Edit your environment in ~/.bash_profile for Mac or ~/.bashrc for many linux distributions. Add the following

export MAHOUT_HOME=/path/to/mahout
export MAHOUT_LOCAL=true # for running standalone on your dev machine, 
# unset MAHOUT_LOCAL for running on a cluster

You will need a $JAVA_HOME, and if you are running on Spark, you will also need $SPARK_HOME

Note when running the spark-shell job it can help to set some JVM options so you don't run out of memory:

$MAHOUT_OPTS="-Xmx6g -XX:MaxPermSize=512m" mahout spark-shell

####Using Mahout as a Library Running any application that uses Mahout will require installing a binary or source version and setting the environment. To compile from source:

  • mvn -DskipTests clean install
  • To run tests do mvn test
  • To set up your IDE, do mvn eclipse:eclipse or mvn idea:idea

To use maven, add the appropriate setting to your pom.xml or build.sbt following the template below.

To use the Samsara environment you'll need to include both the engine neutral math-scala dependency:


and a dependency for back end engine translation, e.g:
