Here’s a breakdown of how to install the Databricks tools and connect to a Databricks workspace.

Understanding Databricks

Databricks is a cloud-based platform for data engineering and analytics. It’s not something you install like traditional software. Here’s what you’ll likely need:

  1. Databricks Account: If you don’t have one, create it first.
  2. Databricks Workspace: A collaborative environment within Databricks where you work. This might be provided to you by your organization, or you might create your own.
  3. Databricks Tools: These help you interact with your Databricks workspace.

Installation Methods

Here are the primary ways to get the required tools:

1. Databricks CLI (Command-Line Interface)

  • Use Cases:  Managing Databricks objects (clusters, notebooks, jobs, etc.) from your computer’s terminal.
  • Platforms: Windows, macOS, Linux.
  • Steps:
      • Install using package managers:Windows: WinGet (Winget install Databricks.DatabricksCLI) or Chocolatey (choco install data bricks-cli)
      • macOS: Homebrew (brew install data bricks-cli)
      • Linux: Refer to the official documentation:
    1. Verify Installation: Run data bricks –version.

2. Databricks Connect

  • Use Case: Running Databricks code (notebooks, libraries) from your local development environment (e.g., your IDE).
  • Platforms: Windows, macOS, Linux (where Python is supported)
  • Steps:
    1. Create a virtual environment (recommended for isolating dependencies)
    2. Install using pip: pip installs –upgrade data bricks-connect==X.Y.* (replace ‘X.Y’ with the version matching your Databricks cluster runtime).
