ArangoBnB: Data Preparation Case Study

00GeneralTags: , , , ,

This case study covers a data exploration and analysis scenario about modeling data when migrating to ArangoDB. The topics covered in this case study include:

  • Importing data into ArangoDB
  • Developing Application Requirements before modeling
  • Data Analysis and Exploration with AQL

This case study can hopefully be used as a guide as it shows step-by-step instructions and discusses the motivations in exploring and transforming data in preparation for a real-world application.
The information contained in this case study is derived from the development of the ArangoBnB project; a community project developed in JavaScript that is always open to new contributors. The project is an Airbnb clone with a Vue frontend and a React frontend being developed in parallel by the community. It is not necessary to download the project or be familiar with JavaScript for this guide. To see how we are using the data in a real-world project, check out the repository.

State of the Art Preprocessing and Filtering with ArangoSearch

00ArangoSearchTags: , , ,

Just in case you haven’t heard about ArangoSearch yet, it is a high-performance Full-Text Search engine integrated in ArangoDB (meaning connected with the other data-models and AQL). Feel free to check out ArangoSearch – Full-text search engine including similarity ranking capabilities for more details.

In ArangoDB version 3.7 the ArangoSearch team added Fuzzy Search support (see the comprehensive article Fuzzy search by Andrey Abramov). With Fuzzy Search data preprocessing and filtering becomes even more important. In the upcoming ArangoDB 3.8 release, ArangoSearch efforts will be focused on improving this part. In this post I’m going to uncover some of the new features we are proud to present.

ArangoDB 3.4 GA
Full-text Search, GeoJSON, Streaming & More

00General, ReleasesTags: , , , ,

The ability to see your data from various perspectives is the idea of a multi-model database. Having the freedom to combine these perspectives into a single query is the idea behind native multi-model in ArangoDB. Extending this freedom is the main thought behind the release of ArangoDB 3.4.

We’re always excited to put a new version of ArangoDB out there, but this time it’s something special. This new release includes two huge features: a C++ based full-text search and ranking engine called ArangoSearch; and largely extended capabilities for geospatial queries by integrating Google™ S2 Geometry Library and GeoJSON.  Read more

ArangoSearch architecture overview

00GeneralTags: ,

In this article, we’re going to dive deeper into our recently released feature preview in Milestone ArangoDB 3.4 – ArangoSearch which provides a rich set of information retrieval capabilities. In particular, we’ll give you an idea of how our search engine works under the hood.

Essentially ArangoSearch consists of 2 components: A search engine and an integration layer. The former is responsible for managing the index, querying and scoring, whereas latter exposes search capabilities to the end user in a convenient way.

Milestone ArangoDB 3.4:
ArangoSearch – Information retrieval with ArangoDB

04General, ReleasesTags: , ,

For the upcoming ArangoDB 3.4 release we’ve implemented a set of information retrieval features exposed via new database object View. The View object is meant to be treated as another data source accessible via AQL and the concept itself is pretty similar to a classical “materialized” view in SQL.

While we are still working on completing the feature, you can already try our retrieval engine in the Milestone of the upcoming ArangoDB 3.4 released today. Read more
