To make queries we will need a running Scylla instance. The easiest way is to use a Docker image.
Please install Docker if it’s not installed.
To start Scylla run:
# on Linux sudo might be required docker run --rm -it -p 9042:9042 scylladb/scylla --smp 2
Docker will download the image, then after minute or two there should be a message like:
Starting listening for CQL clients on 172.17.0.2:9042
This means that Scylla is ready to receive queries
To stop this instance press
Ctrl + C
