From the Blog: Introducing the ArangoDB-DGL Adapter

The ArangoDB-DGL Adapter exports graphs from ArangoDB into Deep Graph Library (DGL), a python package for graph neural networks, and vice-versa.

Check out our blog post for a walkthrough of the ArangoDB-DGL Adapter, via its official Jupyter Notebook. It covers the following use cases:

ArangoDB to DGL

  • Via an ArangoDB graph
  • Via a set of ArangoDB collections
  • Via a user-defined metagraph
  • Unique cases in attribute transfer

DGL to ArangoDB

  • Homogeneous graphs
  • Heterogeneous graphs
  • Unique cases in attribute transfer
