Adding Extensions to RapidMiner

You must be a member of the RapidMiner community to use RapidMiner Marketplace. Join the community for free to access RapidMiner extensions and a host of other benefits.

The RapidMiner RapidMiner Marketplace is your one-stop site to download and share extensions for RapidMiner, the powerful code-free platform for data mining, machine learning, and predictive analytics. Extensions include domain-specific operators like text and web mining, data connectors like NoSQL, and machine learning and data processing libraries like R and Weka. As a developer, you can also share your own extensions on the Marketplace and make them available to the RapidMiner community.

The RapidMiner RapidMiner Marketplace is available via the web to browse, learn, contribute, and bookmark extensions. From within RapidMiner Studio, you can search and learn, but also download extensions directly and fetch your bookmarked selections.

Note: You can also access the Marketplace from the RapidMiner RapidMiner website. Choose Marketplace under the Community tab.
