Crux is an open source document database with bitemporal graph queries. Java and Clojure APIs are provided.
Crux follows an unbundled architectural approach, which means that it is assembled from highly decoupled components through the use of semi-immutable logs at the core of its design. Logs can currently be stored in LMDB or RocksDB for standalone single-node deployments, or using Kafka for clustered deployments. Indexes can currently be stored using LMDB or RocksDB.
At its core Crux is built for efficient bitemporal indexing of schemaless documents, and this simplicity enables broad possibilities for creating layered extensions on top, such as to add additional transaction, query, and schema capabilities. Crux does not currently support SQL but it does provides an EDN-based Datalog query interface that can be used to express a comprehensive range of SQL-like join operations as well as recursive graph traversals.
