Getting Started

Currently, isomorphicdb is not distributed in a binary format. Experimentally, we support a docker image. So you have to have Docker installed on your machine.

Pulling Docker Image

You can pool the image with the following command:

docker pull

To start up application you need to invoke the following command:

docker run -it -d -p 5432:5432

NOTE If you crashed the database docker instance we highly appreciated if you rerun scenario with the following command and post a bug with backtrace:

docker run -it -d -e RUST_BACKTRACE=1 -p 5432:5432


To connect to database you have to have psql on your machine, it can be installed with PostgreSQL from the official website or with package manager like homebrew or apt-get.

Then you can start client with the command:

psql -h -W

After entering random password you should see psql prompt similar to:

psql (12.2, server 0.0.0)
Type "help" for help.


Now you can run SQL queries. Please refere to Supported Queries
