Welcome to Tarantool! This is the User’s Guide. We recommend reading it first, and consulting Reference materials for more detail afterwards, if needed.
How to read the documentation¶
To get started, you can install and launch Tarantool using a Docker container, a binary package, or the online Tarantool server at http://try.tarantool.org. Either way, as the first tryout, you can follow the introductory exercises from Chapter 2 “Getting started”. If you want more hands-on experience, proceed to Tutorials after you are through with Chapter 2.
Chapter 5 “Server administration” is primarily for administrators.
Chapter 6 “Connectors” is strictly for users who are connecting from a different language such as C or Perl or Python — other users will find no immediate need for this chapter.
Chapter 7 “FAQ” gives answers to some frequently asked questions about Tarantool.
