  • ArangoPy 0.5.3 (Python): Sascha Häusler has updated the Python driver so it is compatible with 2.3

Notes on a busy Month at ArangoDB


November 2014 was a month where our staff (and the cute ArangoDB Foxx) collected lot’s of miles by visiting conferences, meetups and inspiring people in Europe, Africa, the US and Canada. If you missed a talk, there are plenty of slideshares / recordings available.

Release 2.3

Everyone who was not on a plane worked on ArangoDB 2.3 – our major release with a re-written query optimizer that optimizes execution plans, added/improved AQL functions and several performance improvements (@see Query Optimizer Tour by Jan). You can download ArangoDB 2.3.1 and start optimizing.

Frank added a docker file, so you might start shipping ArangoDB in a docker container as well. More info

It’s new – and just for you! With the new ArangoDB Cookbook we want to guide you thru various challenges that might arise in your daily business with NoSQL – and ArangoDB in particular.

You have a problem with or need an introduction to NoSQL data modeling / scaling ArangoDB / building Foxx apps / graph processing or something related to your favorite programming language? Then have a look if there’s a recipe match in the Cookbook!

Create your own recipes and help others in the ArangoDB community. We appreciate every participation that makes the cookbook a valuable source for ArangoDB users. Just write your problem description and solution in plain markdown and start a pull request on Github Git:ArangoDB/Cookbook.

Lets assume you checked the foxx introduction on our website and now you want to build your own Foxx app, but you don’t know how to start.

The future of our documentation


We want to present you our growing documentation. A few weeks ago we published the new documentation with a completely new look and a far better structure than before.

Since than we fixed some small issues and rewrote some of the sections. In addition you can fold the code examples for a better overview. Now these code examples will be generated before the release of a new documentation. Because of that the code will be accurate. Now you have the possibility to download .epub or .mobi for your ebook-reader. This way you can explore ArangoDB comfortable on a trip even if you have no internet.

The foundation of our new documentation is build and we think it will help you to understand ArangoDB and its functions. Of course there are some plans for the near future to make our documentation more extensive.

We want to make the documentation even more clearer. So you can find everything you desire as soon as possible. It is planned to add an extra subchapter in most of the chapters with a list of all functions. This way you have a better overview about all functions with a brief explanation. With this list you don’t have to scroll through a whole chapter to find a specific function.

ArangoDB new documentation released

00Documentation, General, ReleasesTags: ,

Dear ArangoDB users, we are proud to announce our new manual for ArangoDB. It is a complete overhaul, with huge changes and improvements, which became necessary because the old manual grew so fast and was edited by so many people, that it became inconsistent. We would appreciate if you could give us feedback. Either by writing comments in the google groups or by opening issues in the GitHub repository.

You can find our new manual here.

Changes highlights:

  • Everything in one place: user manual, developers manual and adminstrators manual
  • Completely new, consistent and themable design
  • Improved navigation through sidebar
  • Powerful search function
