Getting started

Get Started

To quickly get started with a real-world example you can clone the Arc Starter project which has included job definitions and includes a limited set of data for you to quickly try Arc in a custom Jupyter Notebooks environment.

This assumes you have already installed Docker Desktop and have configured the memory settings to at least 4GB (more is better).

git clone
cd arc-starter

The example is within the examples/0/ directory.

To work through a complete example try completing the tutorial.


Arc provides an interactive development experience via a custom Jupyter Notebooks extension. This has been bundled and is available as a Docker image:

docker run \
--name arc-jupyter \
--rm \
-e JAVA_OPTS="-Xmx4096m" \
-p 4040:4040 \
-p 8888:8888 \ \ \
--NotebookApp.password='' \



Example data processing pipelines are available in the Arc Starter project in the examples directory.
