Arcade announces a new Gremlin Connector

Arcade is constantly working to create new database connectors to allow more and more people access to their data. We are happy to announce we now offer a Gremlin connector that allows users to fetch data using Apache TinkerPop Gremlin as the query language. Tinkerpop has become the de-facto standard for graph databases. OrientDB, JanusGraph, Amazon Neptune, Azure Cosmos DB, to name a few,  all offer a Gremlin endpoint.

The first, fully tested, supported database is OrientDB through the Gremlin plugin that exposes a Gremlin server. 

The second database is Amazon NeptuneAmazon Neptune supports popular graph models, such as Property Graph and W3C’s RDF, and their respective query languages: Apache TinkerPop Gremlin and SPARQL.

Users of Arcade can connect to Neptune through an SSH tunnel using an EC2 instance as an SSH gateway. Add our public key to the EC2 instance as explained in the documentation:

As a demo dataset we have ported to Neptune the Rolling Stone’s Top 500 Albums and it is available in our demo, at the same time the Demo database of OrientDB 3.0.x  is provided. 

Let’s play with Gremlin, just type
