1.4: Build Status 2.3: Build Status 2.4: Build Status Master: Build Status

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 and vertically with a few mouse clicks.

Key features include:

  • Schema-free schemata let you combine the space efficiency of MySQL with the performance power of NoSQL
  • Use ArangoDB as an application server and fuse your application and database together for maximal throughput
  • JavaScript for all: no language zoo, you can use one language from your browser to your back-end
  • ArangoDB is multi-threaded - exploit the power of all your cores
  • Flexible data modelling: model your data as combination of key-value pairs, documents or graphs - perfect for social relations
  • Free index choice: use the correct index for your problem, be it a skip list or a fulltext search
  • Configurable durability: let the application decide if it needs more durability or more performance
  • No-nonsense storage: ArangoDB uses all of the power of modern storage hardware, like SSD and large caches
  • 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
  • It is open source (Apache Licence 2.0)

For more in-depth information

For the Impatient

For Mac OSX users: execute

brew install arangodb

For Windows and Linux users: use the installer script or distribution package from our download page.

If the package manager has not already started the ArangoDB server, use the following command to start it.

unix> /path/to/sbin/arangod
2012-03-30T12:54:19Z [11794] INFO ArangoDB (version 2.x.y) is ready for business
2012-03-30T12:54:19Z [11794] INFO Have Fun!

/path/to/sbin is OS dependent. It will normally be either /usr/sbin or /user/local/sbin.

To access ArangoDB in your browser, open the following URL

http://localhost:8529/

and select Tools / JS Shell. You can now use the Arango shell from within your browser.

Alternatively, a scriptable shell is available as a command-line tool arangosh.

arangosh> db._create("hello");
arangosh> db.hello.save({ world: "earth" });

Congratulations! You have created your first collection named hello and your first document. To verify your achievements, type:

arangosh> db.hello.toArray();

More Information

Please check the Installation Manual for installation and compilation instructions.

The User Manual has an introductory chapter showing the basic operations of ArangoDB.

Or you can use the online tutorial to play with ArangoDB without installing it locally.
