Vertex is a high performance graph database that supports automatic garbage collection, built on libevent and tokyocabinet. It uses HTTP as its communication protocol and JSON as its response data format. It's BSD licensed and was written by Steve Dekorte and Rich Collins.
docs/manual.html for API and more details.
Currently in production use and working well so far. The API is still not set in stone though.
Compiling on Mac OS X
sudo port install yajl tokyocabinet libevent libzip # or if you are using homebrew brew install yajl tokyo-cabinet libevent cmake . make sudo make install
If all was fine, in build/vertexdb will be bin file
vertexdb -db blog1.db
or as daemon
sudo vertexdb -db /opt/database -d --pid /var/run/vertex.pid
--database <file> -db <file> Database file --port <num> -p <num> TCP port number to listen on (default: 8080) --host <ip> -H <ip> Network interface to listen (default: 127.0.0.1) --daemon -d Run as a daemon --log <file> Log file location --pid <file> Pid file location --debug Be more verbose --hardsync Run with hard syncronization --help -h Show this help
May add support for more complex queries and dynamic/automatic index creation based on observed queries.
Dynamic languages support
- ruby - comming soon (or ask in pm)
If you have Docker installed, you can build a Docker image and run it in a container
docker build -t vertexdb . # build docker run -d -p 8080:80 --name myVertexdb vertexdb # running on PORT 8080 (On MAC, the IP address of the container is given via Kitematic)
or get an image of
vertexdb directly from the Docker Hub
docker run -d -p 8080:80 -e OPTS="" --name myVertexdb earvin/vertexdb
OPTS could be
- both or ""
