pyspark-csv (homepage)

An external PySpark module that works like R's read.csv or Panda's read_csv, with automatic type inference and null value handling. Parses csv data into SchemaRDD. No installation required, simply include via SparkContext.

Supports type inference by evaluating data within each column. In the case of column having multiple data types, pyspark-csv will assign the lowest common denominator type for that column. Type inference also gracefully handles null values (e.g., None, ? and '')
