Download Cloudera Quickstarts and follow the installation instructions for your platform. Import Cloudera.ovf file into VirtualBox. Anaconda in Cloudera Quickstart. The extracted zip should have the “Cloudera-quickstart-VM-5.8.0-0-Virtualbox-disk1.vmdk“. Configure Virtual Box And Cloudera. Step 5: Open the VirtualBox, and create a new VM. To get the latest drivers, see Cloudera Hadoop (Link opens in a new window) on the Tableau Driver Download page. Make the connection and set up the data source. Start Tableau and under Connect, select Cloudera Hadoop. For a complete list of data connections, select More under To a Server. Then do the following.

Has anyone tried this? Google turns up a complete blank and it's been an arduous process so far (I'm pretty new to make, ant, etc).

After downloading a multitude of dependencies, some frankly unwise use of 'ln -s' and copious amounts of 'sudo'...I finally have hit an error I can't get past.

I'm on Mac OS X 10.7.2 (Lion) and running Hadoop CDH3 (hadoop-0.20.2-cdh3u2), Hue 1.2.0.

Any assistance would be much appreciated - many thanks in advance.

The Hue release download you're trying to compile, works only until CDH3u1 onwards, after which CDH3 had some internal API method changes, over some methods that Hue depends on.

The following works for me, to compile Hue 1.2.0 against CDH3u1:

You'd of course need some dependencies to compile all components successfully. I use Homebrew to manage mine, and this is my currently installed list (you do not need all of these, but may need some of these):

For a release of Hue that works with your CDH3 version, you can pick the right download from the CDH3 archives:

So, for your CDH3u2 version, download and use which carries 1.2.0 version of Hue with some backports on it from master that fix compilation for CDH3u2.

I am enrolled in a class that will be using Cloudera CDH and Hadoop, etc.


The current set-up for the class involves using a virtual machine with VirtualBox.

I am just wondering if there is a faster, more efficient implementation of the program that I can use. Can the program somehow be installed in my native environment instead?

(I am using a 2017 Macbook Pro with OS High Sierra)

You can install Hadoop, Spark, Hive, Pig, in your Mac Os in the so-called pseudo-distributed mode. It is an installation in your local machine in which every node of the 'cluster' is a Java Virtual Machine. The starting point is the Hadoop installation, you can follow this tutorial:

There are many tutorials on installing other part of the Hadoop ecosystem in mac OS, at least for El Capitan. (I did not experience any issue on following them on High Sierra).

The Hadoop experience you have in Cloudera or MapR or other sandboxes is totally different. Very smooth. You run Hue and start coding from there: you have Impala (not yet available for Mac OS), Hive, Sqoop, Pig editor and many other services working on the HDFS already set for you. Everything is ready to be exploited. You just start all the services from the Cloudera manager opening the Firefox browser in the VM and you can start analysing the data. In terms of learning, and I think this is what you might care about in this stage, this is the most efficient way.

A bit more efficient way to install Cloudera Quick start is using Docker. First download the community edition for Mac at:

Then from terminal type:

and follow the installation at:

You will see that it runs more efficiently and it is more stable than the VM.

Efficiency in computational sense, comes with cloud services. You can use AWS, Azure, GCP, or other cloud providers and experiment the real power of Hadoop in a second stage. There are many offers for free experimenting cloud services, but they are limited in time or in free credits (in terms of $) you can spend. So I would suggest to go there after having acquired the most important skills.


Can the program somehow be installed in my native environment instead?

Yes, Hadoop can be installed on your Mac. No, CDH has no DMG for macOS.

Will that be the same as running CDH? No, there is no Cloudera Manager, Hue, Hive, HBase, Sqoop, Pig, Spark, etc.

Each of those extra tools would need to be installed separately.

The 'faster, more efficient' alternative would be to use a dedicated CDH cluster that is external to your Mac.
