The official Docker image for EdgeDB

This repository contains the officially maintained Docker image packaging EdgeDB and the EdgeDB CLI.

When to use this image

This image is intended for use in production, or as part of a development setup that involves multiple containers orchestrated by Docker Compose or a similar tool. Otherwise, we recommend using the edgedb CLI to install EdgeDB and manage local instances.

  • strict, object-oriented typed schema;
  • powerful and expressive query language;
  • rich standard library;
  • built-in support for schema migrations;
  • native GraphQL support.
