Use Commanded to build your own Elixir applications following the [CQRS/ES](http://cqrs.nu/Faq) pattern.
Provides support for:
- Command registration and dispatch.
- Hosting and delegation to aggregates.
- Event handling.
- Long running process managers.
Commanded provides a solid technical foundation for you to build on. It allows you to focus on modelling your domain, the most important part of your app, creating a better application at a faster pace.
You can use Commanded with one of the following event stores for persistence:
- [EventStore](https://github.com/commanded/eventstore) Elixir library using PostgreSQL for persistence
- Greg Young's [Event Store](https://eventstore.org/).
- [In-memory event store](https://github.com/commanded/commanded/wiki/In-memory-event-store) included for test use only.
Please refer to the [CHANGELOG](CHANGELOG.md) for features, bug fixes, and any upgrade advice included for each release.

- Case Study: [Building a CQRS/ES web application in Elixir using Phoenix](https://10consulting.com/2017/01/04/building-a-cqrs-web-application-in-elixir-using-phoenix/)
## Example application
[Conduit](https://github.com/slashdotdash/conduit) is an open source, example Phoenix 1.3 web application implementing the CQRS/ES pattern in Elixir. It was built to demonstrate the implementation of Commanded in an Elixir application for the [Building Conduit](https://leanpub.com/buildingconduit) book.
