Python Library

Altair RapidMiner provides a Python library on GitHub that allows you to interact with Altair RapidMiner products from Python. You can collaborate with others using the Altair RapidMiner repository, run processes from Python scripts, and leverage the scalable infrastructure of Altair AI Hub.

The rapidminer Python library will be useful in these use-cases:

  • you work locally on the same data in Altair RapidMiner and in Python.
  • you need to reuse business logic that exists in an Altair RapidMiner process in Python.
  • you develop Python code snippets that you may later use in a Altair RapidMiner process. You can access the input data directly from your local Altair RapidMiner repository without any additional export / import step.
  • you are using Python primarily, but want to collaborate with colleagues using the Altair RapidMiner platform. You can easily share any kind of data via the Altair AI Hub repository.
  • you plan to leverage the scalable Altair AI Hub infrastructure directly from Python.
  • you want to call a deployed Real-Time Scoring service directly from Python.

If you are working with Notebooks inside AI Hub, the library will be already provisioned and cover most of the above use-cases.


The installation is a one-liner using the Python package manager pip.

pip install rapidminer
