Druid is an extremely popular tool to perform OLAP queries on event data. Druid drives real-time dashboards in most of the organisations right now. We@Zapr love Druid! Therefore we want to contribute towards making Druid, even more, friendlier to the ever expanding community.

We want to make the process of deep meaningful conversations with Druid little easier. What do we mean is that we don’t want developers to write big, scary JSON anymore but instead use a simple Java-based query generator to help with the querying.

Creating JSON freely can cause tedious bugs such as date type mistakes or spelling mistakes and potentially code can get bigger and messier and less readable. So, in reality, we want to keep the main focus of querying to be the use-case, not the type-checks.

We are excited to know whether you liked it or loved it, so please reach out to us at


Druidry is an open-source Java based utility library which supports creating query to Druid automatically taking care of following,

  • Type checking.
  • Spelling Checks.
  • Code reviewability and readability.

This library is still growing and does not support each and every constructs, however it supports the most common one used internally @Zapr.

Getting Started


  • Maven
  • Java 8


Add this in your pom.xml (assuming maven based project)


Replace ${LATEST_VERSION} with latest release version
