Pyspark x Kafka

I’m trying to implement reading a kafka topic in pyspark, for reading in streaming service. The code I wrote was this:

df = spark
.format ( “kafka”)
.option ( “kafka.bootstrap.servers”, “kafka:9092”)
.option ( “subscribe”, “topic1”)
.option ( “startingOffsets”, “latest”)

however, the following error occurs:
pyspark.sql.utils.AnalysisException: Failed to find data source: kafka. Please deploy the application as per the deployment section of “Structured Streaming + Kafka Integration Guide”.

would anyone have any tips?
