Does GRAKN already support MongoDB as storage backend? if so, can you please indicate the steps to follow to set up Mongo as the storage of GRAKN?
Hi @Pegazux, we don't support MongoDB, since GRAKN.AI itself is "a database". It is a (superior**) alternative to MongoDB, though.
**if you have large, diverse and complex data.
@haikal would be great to have a python client lib given python is the most wanted language in 2017 according to Stack Overflow and #3 for data scientists:
we do have a python driver @johnwoo1. But i do imagine it may need some update and maintenance. We'll build the properly library (not just a wrapper) at some point. @miko or @felix can point you to where the python driver is.
ps: miko/felix we should put the python driver in a repository on our github.
yes I chatted with miko a few weeks ago about the driver this one I think:
it says "Quick and dirty scripts", so I don't know if it qualifies for serious prod use
what's your 'ETA' on this? 3 months? 6 ? 12? 24? just asking, I know you have probably a lot to do
We'll make sure to add to our development requirements to release and maintain an official python driver, @johnwoo1 - I promise! I'll let you know when that happens.
I've been playing with NetworkX (A well know python library for graphs) to load and store data from/to grakn. I do not have anything shareable yet, but I was planning on sharing a package with the community. If there is interest in the community we can create a focus group.
that's awesome @merqurio! yes, it will be definitely useful to the community. Do share when you can and we can also help polishing things up!
