Gstore System(also called gStore) is a graph database engine for managing large graph-structured data, which is open-source and targets at Linux operation systems. The whole project is written in C++, with the help of some libraries such as readline, antlr, and so on. Only source tarballs are provided currently, which means you have to compile the source code if you want to use our system.
The formal experiment result is in Experiment.
We have built an IRC channel named #gStore on freenode, and you can visit the homepage of gStore.
Compile from Source
This system is really user-friendly and you can pick it up in several minutes. Remember to check your platform where you want to run this system by viewing System Requirements. After all are verified, please get this project's source code. There are several ways to do this:
download the zip from this repository and extract it
fork this repository in your github account
git clone https://github.com/Caesar11/gStore.gitin your terminal or use git GUI to acquire it
Then you need to compile the project, just type
make in the gStore root directory, then all executables will be generated.
Deploy via Docker
To run gStore, please type
bin/gbuild database_name dataset_path to build a database named by yourself. And you can use
bin/gquery database_name command to query an existing database. What is more,
bin/ghttp is a wonderful tool designed for you, as a database server which can be accessed via HTTP protocol. Notice that all commands should be typed in the root directory of gStore, and your database name should not end with ".db".
If you want to understand the details of the gStore system, or you want to try some advanced operations(for example, using the API, server/client), please see the chapters below.
