If you just want to see what Glowdust looks like, go to the quick introduction

The words "glow" and "dust", in capitals, each in its own row. They appear to be made of neon tubes, with a purple glow.

Glowdust is a new kind of Database Management System. It uses functions as a model for storing data and comes with a query language build from the ground up to use familiar programming concepts. The aim is to create a DBMS design that blurs the boundary between algorithm and data, to reduce the burden of building and deploying applications.

The full documentation for Glowdust is available in the Glowdust book where you can find installation instructions, a tutorial, the syntax guide for scripting and queries, and more.
