Do you think we are missing an alternative of Scylla or a related project?
Scylla is fairly fussy about its build environment, requiring very recent versions of the C++20 compiler and of many libraries to build. The document [HACKING.md](HACKING.md) includes detailed information on building and developing Scylla, but to get Scylla building quickly on (almost) any build machine, Scylla offers offers a [frozen toolchain](tools/toolchain/README.md), This is a pre-configured Docker image which includes recent versions of all the required compilers, libraries and build tools. Using the frozen toolchain allows you to avoid changing anything in your build machine to meet Scylla's requirements - you just need to meet the frozen toolchain's prerequisites (mostly, Docker or Podman being available).
Building and running Scylla with the frozen toolchain is as easy as:
$ ./tools/toolchain/dbuild ./configure.py $ ./tools/toolchain/dbuild ninja build/release/scylla $ ./tools/toolchain/dbuild ./build/release/scylla --developer-mode 1
- Run Scylla ``` ./build/release/scylla
* run Scylla with one CPU and ./tmp as work directory
./build/release/scylla --workdir tmp --smp 1
* For more run options:
## Testing See [test.py manual](docs/testing.md). ## Scylla APIs and compatibility By default, Scylla is compatible with Apache Cassandra and its APIs - CQL and Thrift. There is also experimental support for the API of Amazon DynamoDB, but being experimental it needs to be explicitly enabled to be used. For more information on how to enable the experimental DynamoDB compatibility in Scylla, and the current limitations of this feature, see [Alternator](docs/alternator/alternator.md) and [Getting started with Alternator](docs/alternator/getting-started.md). ## Documentation Documentation can be found in [./docs](./docs) and on the [wiki](https://github.com/scylladb/scylla/wiki). There is currently no clear definition of what goes where, so when looking for something be sure to check both. Seastar documentation can be found [here](http://docs.seastar.io/master/index.html). User documentation can be found [here](https://docs.scylladb.com/). ## Training Training material and online courses can be found at [Scylla University](https://university.scylladb.com/). The courses are free, self-paced and include hands-on examples. They cover a variety of topics including Scylla data modeling, administration, architecture, basic NoSQL concepts, using drivers for application development, Scylla setup, failover, compactions, multi-datacenters and how Scylla integrates with third-party applications. ## Building a CentOS-based Docker image Build a Docker image with:
cd dist/docker/redhat docker build -t .
This build is based on executables downloaded from downloads.scylladb.com, **not** on the executables built in this source directory. See further instructions in dist/docker/redhat/README.md to build a docker image from your own executables. Run the image with:
docker run -p $(hostname -i):9042:9042 -i -t
