A rust client for dgraph

CC-0Build Status

The client used the grpc channel & api of dgraph.

What is dgraph ?

from dgraph site:

Dgraph is an open source, horizontally scalable and distributed graph database, providing ACID transactions, consistent replication and linearizable reads. It's built from ground up to perform for a rich set of queries. Being a native graph database, it tightly controls how the data is arranged on disk to optimize for query performance and throughput, reducing disk seeks and network calls in a cluster.

Dgraph's goal is to provide Google production level scale and throughput, with low enough latency to be serving real time user queries, over terabytes of structured data. Dgraph supports GraphQL-like query syntax, and responds in JSON and Protocol Buffers over GRPC and HTTP.

Sample adpated from go sample at https://docs.dgraph.io/clients/

The lib used grpcio to generate the rust code from grpc's proto file.

cargo build
