rqlite is a lightweight, distributed relational database, which uses SQLite as its storage engine. rqlite provides an easy-to-use, fault-tolerant store for critical relational data.

This is the first release of the 4.0 series. It includes node-to-node encryption, clearer command-line options, new in-CLI commands, amongst other changes. See the CHANGELOG for full details, and on how to upgrade from previous releases. And if you wish to build rqlite from source, check out this documentation.

Getting started

To download and run a single rqlite node, which automatically becomes leader, follow the directions below. It's also very easy to run a rqlite cluster -- you can learn more by checking out the documentation.


To download and start rqlite on Linux, execute the following in a shell.

curl -L -o rqlited-v4.0.0-linux-amd64.tar.gz
tar xvfz rqlited-v4.0.0-linux-amd64.tar.gz
cd rqlited-v4.0.0-linux-amd64
./rqlited ~/node.1


To download and start rqlite on OSX, execute the following in a shell.

curl -L -o rqlited-v4.0.0-darwin-amd64.tar.gz
tar xvfz rqlited-v4.0.0-darwin-amd64.tar.gz
cd rqlited-v4.0.0-darwin-amd64
./rqlited ~/node.1


rqlite can be built for Windows, and compatibility is ensured at all times via AppVeyor. However you will need to build for Windows yourself. Check out the CI build for Windows for more details.
