Reintroducing the ArangoDB-RDF Adapter

Estimated reading time: 1 minute

ArangoRDF allows you to export Graphs from ArangoDB into RDFLib, the standard library for working with Resource Description Framework (RDF) in Python, and vice-versa.

Back in December 2023, we (quietly) released ArangoRDF’s 0.1 distribution, which reworked
functionality to introduce a consistent RDF-to-ArangoDB & ArangoDB-to-RDF experience based
on the paper Transforming RDF-star to Property Graphs: A Preliminary Analysis of
Transformation Approaches

Our latest 0.9 release complements previous overhaul & restoration changes by increasing the
number of transformation cases covered, optimizing its codebase, and improving

This blog post will provide a brief outline and links for the walkthrough of ArangoRDF as
demonstrated by the official Jupyter Notebook mentioned below.

In the notebook you will find the following use cases:

  1. ArangoDB to RDF
    • Via an ArangoDB graph
    • Via a set of ArangoDB Collections
    • Via a user-defined Metagraph
  2. RDF to ArangoDB
  3. Full Cycles
    • ArangoDB → RDF → ArangoDB
    • RDF → ArangoDB → RDF

We hope you enjoy the notebook, you can get started with it today on:
Google Colab

As always we look forward to your feedback!
