Eclipse Hono’s service components are provided by means of pre-built Docker images available from Docker Hub. These container images can be deployed to popular container orchestration platforms like Kubernetes and OpenShift.
The Eclipse IoT Packages project hosts the Hono Helm chart which can be used to install the most recent release of Hono to a Kubernetes cluster using the Helm package manager. Please refer to the deployment guide for installation instructions.
A command line client for interacting with Hono’s north bound APIs and its AMQP adapter is available for download from
- Eclipse Hono 2.3.0 Command Line Client (Java Archive)
- Eclipse Hono 2.3.0 Command Line Client (Linux x86_64)
The Java client requires a Java 17 runtime environment to run. The Linux binary should run on most (modern) Linux distributions.
Please refer to the Getting Started Guide for details regarding the usage of the command line client.
The source code can be cloned or downloaded from Hono’s GitHub repository. The Building from Source guide provides instructions on how to build Hono locally.
