I'm trying to use spark-submit to execute my python code in spark cluster.

Generally we run spark-submit with python code like below.

# Run a Python application on a cluster
./bin/spark-submit \
  --master spark:// \ \

But I wanna run my_python_code.pyby passing several arguments Is there smart way to pass arguments?

Given below is a proper way to handle line commands args in PySpark jobs:

import argparse

parser = argparse.ArgumentParser()

parser.add_argument("--ngrams", help="some useful description.")

args = parser.parse_args()

if args.ngrams:

    ngrams = args.ngrams

Now, you can easily launch your job as follows:

spark-submit --ngrams 3
