arangodb  3.4.4
About: ArangoDB is a multi-purpose database supporting flexible data models for documents, graphs, and key-values (using a convenient SQL-like query language or JavaScript/Ruby extensions). Community edition.
  Fossies Dox: arangodb-3.4.4.tar.gz  ("inofficial" and yet experimental doxygen-generated source code documentation)  

Some Fossies usage hints in advance:

  1. To see the Doxygen generated documentation please click on one of the items in the "quick index" bar above or use the side panel at the left which displays a hierarchical tree-like index structure and is adjustable in width.
  2. If you want to search for something by keyword rather than browse for it you can use the client side search facility (using Javascript and DHTML) that provides live searching, i.e. the search results are presented and adapted as you type in the Search input field at the top right.
  3. Doxygen doesn't incorporate all member files but just a definable subset (basically the main project source code files that are written in a supported language). So to search and browse all member files you may visit the Fossies arangodb-3.4.4.tar.gz contents page and use the Fossies standard member browsing features (also with source code highlighting and additionally with optional code folding).

ArangoDB is a multi-model, open-source database with flexible data models for documents, graphs, and key-values. Build high performance applications using a convenient SQL-like query language or JavaScript extensions. Use ACID transactions if you require them. Scale horizontally with a few mouse clicks.

The supported data models can be mixed in queries and allow ArangoDB to be the aggregation point for your data.

To get started, try one of our 10 minutes tutorials in your favorite programming language or try one of our ArangoDB Cookbook recipes.

For the impatient: download and install ArangoDB. Start the server arangod and point your browser to http://127.0.0.1:8529/.

Key Features in ArangoDB

  • Multi-Model: Documents, graphs and key-value pairs model your data as you see fit for your application.
  • Joins: Conveniently join what belongs together for flexible ad-hoc querying, less data redundancy.
  • Transactions: Easy application development keeping your data consistent and safe. No hassle in your client.

Here is an AQL query that makes use of all those features:

AQL Query Example

Joins and transactions are key features for flexible, secure data designs, widely used in relational databases but lacking in many NoSQL products. However, there is no need to forgo them in ArangoDB. You decide how and when to use joins and strong consistency guarantees, without sacrificing performance and scalability.

Furthermore, ArangoDB offers a JavaScript framework called Foxx that is executed in the database server with direct access to the data. Build your own data-centric microservices with a few lines of code:

Microservice Example

Microservice Example

By extending the HTTP API with user code written in JavaScript, ArangoDB can be turned into a strict schema-enforcing persistence engine.

Next step, bundle your Foxx application as a docker container and get it running in the cloud.

Other features of ArangoDB include:

  • Use a data-centric microservices approach with ArangoDB Foxx and fuse your application-logic and database together for maximal throughput
  • JavaScript for all: no language zoo, you can use one language from your browser to your back-end
  • Flexible data modeling: model your data as combination of key-value pairs, documents or graphs - perfect for social relations
  • Different storage engines: ArangoDB provides a storage engine for mostly in-memory operations and an alternative storage engine based on RocksDB which handle datasets that are much bigger than RAM.
  • Powerful query language (AQL) to retrieve and modify data
  • Transactions: run queries on multiple documents or collections with optional transactional consistency and isolation
  • Replication and Sharding: set up the database in a master-slave configuration or spread bigger datasets across multiple servers
  • Configurable durability: let the application decide if it needs more durability or more performance
  • Schema-free schemata let you combine the space efficiency of MySQL with the performance power of NoSQL
  • Free index choice: use the correct index for your problem, be it a skiplist or a fulltext search
  • ArangoDB is multi-threaded - exploit the power of all your cores
  • It is open source (Apache License 2.0)
