Graph Engine - Open Source
|-||Windows .NET Framework||Windows .NET Core||Ubuntu 16.04 .NET Core|
Microsoft Graph Engine is a distributed in-memory data processing engine, underpinned by a strongly-typed in-memory key-value store and a general distributed computation engine.
This repository contains the source code of Graph Engine and its graph query language -- Language Integrated Knowledge Query (LIKQ). LIKQ is a versatile graph query language on top of Graph Engine. It combines the capability of fast graph exploration and the flexibility of lambda expression: server-side computations can be expressed in lambda expressions, embedded in LIKQ, and executed on the server side during graph traversal. LIKQ is powering Academic Graph Search API, which is part of Microsoft Cognitive Services.
Graph Engine is regularly released with bug fixes and feature enhancements.
You can install Graph Engine Visual Studio Extension by searching "Graph Engine" in Visual Studio Extensions and Updates (recommended). It can also be downloaded from Visual Studio Gallery.
