Re: Is there a standard, human-friendly, serialization format?

Hi Laura,

Many people use CSV for data and JSON for schemas (in other graph databases too). Not sure what will be the most "standard" or "efficient" approach, but CSV/JSON seems to be most common. For example https://github.com/IBM/janusgraph-utils and https://github.com/dengziming/janusgraph-util

Best regards,

All the examples that I see in the Janus documentation seem to use Groovy. Instructions such as JanusGraphFactory.open(), graph.openManagement(), mgmt.makeEdgeLabel() etc.
Is there any human-friendly plaintext format that I can use to write my graph with, and then load into Janus? In practical terms what I would like to do is this:

1. write my graph in a text file, all nodes and edges, and the schema too. So the format should be human-friendly and easy to edit manually. Hopefully not XML.
2. load this graph into Janus by asking Janus to read my graph file. Not in-memory though, I mean to create a new persistent database that is always there when Janus starts.
