Crux is becoming XTDB!

You can read the rename announcement, or head to this page on the new XTDB site (where you'll be taken in 10 seconds).


Building Crux artifacts

Alongside the various images available on Dockerhub, there are a number of artifacts available for getting started quickly with Crux.

These can be found on the latest release of Crux. Currently, these consist of a number of common configuration uberjars and a custom artifact builder.

To create your own custom artifacts for Crux:

  • Download and extract the crux-builder.tar.gz from the latest release

  • You can build an uberjar using either Clojure’s deps.edn or Maven (whichever you’re more comfortable with)

    • For Clojure, you can add further Crux dependencies in the deps.edn file, set the node config in crux.edn, and run

    • For Maven, it’s the same, but dependencies go in pom.xml

  • Additionally, you can build a Docker image using the script in the docker directory.


If you wish to use Crux with Docker (no JVM/JDK/Clojure install required!) we have the following:

  • Crux HTTP Node: An image of a standalone Crux node (using a in memory kv-store by default) & HTTP server, useful if you wish to a freestanding Crux node accessible over HTTP, only having to use Docker.
