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.

Release 4.5.0 allows a root Certificate Authority cert to be passed to the CLI. See the CHANGELOG for full details. 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.

Linux

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

curl -L https://github.com/rqlite/rqlite/releases/download/v4.5.0/rqlite-v4.5.0-linux-amd64.tar.gz -o rqlite-v4.5.0-linux-amd64.tar.gz
tar xvfz rqlite-v4.5.0-linux-amd64.tar.gz
cd rqlite-v4.5.0-linux-amd64
./rqlited ~/node.1

OSX

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

curl -L https://github.com/rqlite/rqlite/releases/download/v4.5.0/rqlite-v4.5.0-darwin-amd64.tar.gz -o rqlite-v4.5.0-darwin-amd64.tar.gz
tar xvfz rqlite-v4.5.0-darwin-amd64.tar.gz
cd rqlite-v4.5.0-darwin-amd64
./rqlited ~/node.1

Windows

rqlite can be built for Windows, and compatibility is ensured at all times via AppVeyor. However you may need to build a specific release yourself, though the top-of-tree build is available for download from AppVeyor. Check out the CI build for Windows for more details.
