You only need one of the following installation options. If you followed the Quickstart, you already have the Docker Hub version installed.

Warning: Early Beta

Endb is still in early beta.

While in beta, new versions are not guaranteed to have binary-compatible storage with previous versions. We encourage you to experiment with Endb but please do not use it in production until a General Availability release.

Installing from Docker Hub

There are two major release channels available: stable and nightly. To run the nightly builds, replace endatabas/endb with endatabas/endb:nightly in the commands below.

If you run Docker, you can use the default command below. --rm cleans up (optional), -p exposes the default endb port, and -v mounts a local volume so your data persists even if you shut down the Docker image.

mkdir -p endb_data
docker pull endatabas/endb
docker run --rm -p 3803:3803 -v endb_data:/app/endb_data endatabas/endb

If you run Podman, you'll need to specify the repo explicitly:

mkdir -p endb_data
podman pull
podman run --rm -p 3803:3803 -v endb_data:/app/endb_data

Installing from Git: Docker

If you want to run endb from the main branch, compile and build the Docker image:

Installing from Git: Binary

If you don't want Docker at all, you can compile and run the endb binary:

NOTE: If you move the endb binary, be sure to copy (Linux) or libendb.dylib (MacOS) into the same directory. This is because endb requires libendb to run.
