Hi ,

I am a new bee willing to explore on Janus database. One of my primary question is Is Janus graph database mandatorily need a back end database. Second thing is Is there any possibilities that I can use Janus with python(rather than gremlin).


Thank You

1. Yes, you need to pick a storage backend. There is an inmemory storage backend that is useful for small testing scenarios, if you don't care about persistence.

2. Yes, you can use JanusGraph with Python. This is done with the Gremlin Server. You would need to add a configuration for gremlin-python. The Apache TinkerPop documentation covers a lot of this. Keep in mind that you would still be using Gremlin, which is a domain specific language for traversing graphs, but it would be native in Python (rather than passing a Gremlin query string across the wire to the server).
