Community Extension


Using the RapidMiner community extension, you can share your RapidMiner workflows with data mininers all over the word using the myexperiment.org portal. On the myExpeiment web site you can discuss data mining processes, exchange workflows, and meet data miners working on similar problems.

This video shows how to use the RapidMiner Community Extension to upload processes to myExperiment.

Browsing and Opening Workflows

Within RapidMiner, you can open all public RapidMiner workflows. You can recognize the RapidMiner workflows by looking at the "Workflow Type" entry on the upper right corner. To browse the workflow on the Web, click the "Browse" button to open a Web browser showing the respective site.

Installation

The Community Extension can be downloaded from the Rapid-I Marketplace from within RapidMiner. Details are available here. In order to upload RapidMiner processes to myExperiment.org, you must create an account first.

Enabling the MyExperiment Browser in RapidMiner

To show the myExperiment browser, go to the View menu in RapidMiner and enable the MyExperiment Browser tab. I recommend to minimize the tab and open it whenever you need it. You can immediately start browsing the workflow repository, but in order to upload workflows, you need to make an account on myexperiment.org.
