Spark Typeclass

Cats typeclass instances for Apache Spark

Currently only contains algebraic (Semigroup / Monoid) and order typeclass instances for Column DataFrame and Dataset. For RDD typeclass instances, you may wish refer to Frameless. (We could include them in this project in the future as well.)

This project has been compile with Spark 2.4.0 but it should compatible with any Spark 2.x on Scala 2.11.x or 2.12.x.
