2.1 Download & Installation

EventQL currently runs on Linux and OSX. The distribution contains three binaries called evql (client and interactive shell), evqld (server) and evqlctl (cluster control).

You can download binary and source tarballs here.

Install from Git

Before we can start we need to install some build dependencies. Currently you need a modern c++ compiler, libz, autotools and python (for spidermonkey/mozbuild)

# Ubuntu
$ apt-get install clang++ cmake make automake autoconf zlib1g-dev

$ brew install automake autoconf

Now we can clone, compile and install EventQL:

$ git clone git@github.com:eventql/eventql.git
$ cd eventql
$ ./autogen.sh && ./configure && make
$ sudo make install

Install from Source Tarball

Download source tarballs here. To compile EventQL from a source (distribution) tarball, you need a modern c++ compiler, libz and python (for spidermonkey/mozbuild)

$ ./configure
$ make
$ sudo make install

Install from Binary Tarball

Download binary tarballs here. To install a binary tarball, all we need to do is to extract the archive to the right location:

$ cd / && tar xzf /path/to/eventql-x.x.x-arch.tgz
