Provide an API for DSX

One really nice feature with Bluemix is that it is possible to automate creating and setting up services and applications.

It would be good if an API existed for DSX so that we could automate tasks like:

- create and delete projects
- add/remove spark instances in a project
- import, add and remove notebooks in a project
- execute notebooks in a project
- add files to a project
- restart a kernel (may be required after adding libraries)

    Also for executing a notebook, it would be great to be able to set parameters

    Yes, something similar to boto or awstools for SparkAAS on bluemix would be wonderful.

    Thanks for submitting and discussing this idea for creating an API for DSX. We are currently in the midst of building such an API, beginning with an API for our Projects and then also building out one for WML. For more updates, please make sure to be on the look out for a 'What's New' post and for notifications on this idea!
