Using the RapidMiner Marketplace
The RapidMiner Marketplace is your one-stop site to download and share extensions for RapidMiner Studio. Follow these steps for detailed instructions on accessing and using the RapidMiner Marketplace, or take a look at Marketplace here.
Moving the start script
By default, the RAPIDMINER_HOME variable is set to the folder location of the start script. If you leave the script within the installation folder (the most common method), the environment variable is set correctly. If you move the start script out of the installation folder, you must set the environment variable RAPIDMINER_HOME to the installation path of RapidMiner Studio. This allows RapidMiner to find its resource files.
Uninstalling or re-installing RapidMiner Studio
At the first running of RapidMiner Studio, the software creates a
.RapidMiner folder in your user home directory. RapidMiner Studio stores your personal settings and data (e.g., database connections) in this folder. If you ever need to completely remove RapidMiner or to discard all personal settings, simply delete this directory. Do not remove the directory if your RapidMiner Studio installation is damaged and you want to re-install it. By maintaining the
.RapidMiner directory, your personal data will be kept in tact for the new installation.
To delete the
.RapidMiner directory off of a Mac:
Open Finder and from the pull-down menus select Go > Go to Folder. (Alternatively, use the keyboard shortcut .)
In the resulting dialog, enter
~/.RapidMiner/and click Go.
From the pull-down menus, select View > as Columns to select the columns view. (Alternatively, use the keyboard shortcut .) The
.RapidMinerfolder is highlighted.
Delete the folder (Move to Trash).
