Dgraph is a very powerful graphical database. It is still undergoing changes, but I believe it is one of the best it has today. Although it is changing a lot adding new features.
They support Post HTTP, gRPC, and so on. I imagine it would be simple now use these supports they give us. However, I believe a more native support. Using gRPC or even some simple integration solution that can natively understand Dgraph for Elixir.
That can be really cool, I’ve working with Dgraph for about a month (I created a PR to dgraphex to support virtual fields and resolvers), is pretty cool and the new update is very promising, but as I mention in that post Elixir don’t have any functional Grpc library so it will make harder to support Dgraph for elixir
For the moment I’ve working in a parser to Absinthe request to Dgraph request, but seems like it will be obsolete when the 0.9 will be release, so I’m thinking if really continue using Dgraph or just stick to another solution…
This “Join-Monster” has a very interesting and abstract concept. If we had something similar for a module for Elixir + Dgraph. It would be the holy grail. For it would not depend on much (Although something native would be better).And except for new endpoints that Dgraph staff may change again in the future.
Join-Monster copies both Schema and resolves and acts as a middleware. Sending to the database (Postgress, MySQL or something) the exact query that a Dgraph Client uses. That is, Join-Monster adapts to the user’s Schema and the client query. DgraphQL does something similar.
I usually search for articles. For if I go searching in GitHub I will see hundreds of repositories that escape my goal. Google in thesis would give me an accurate result if there were blogs or other sources talking about the topic. Abstract searches are best with search engines.
Sorry for the late response. I’ve been really busy ^^’
It look pretty cool! As I can see you can achieve the same with Ecto (look absinthe ecto) but there is not something that batch all the construct joins and so on (for the moment), I’ve been very tempted to make a library on Ecto for DGraph but I’m really sure if they can fill that well as I’m thinking ^^’
