Hi! I see Gremlin on the 2021 roadmap (and on the 2020 roadmap before that). Where would be a good place to track/petition for support for Gremlin?
There’s a few comments by @mrjn in #8479 and there’s this closer from @chewxy #9554, and there is some discussion from ancient threads (2016-2019). These don’t seem like the right place.
Why, if it’s of use:
I had dreams of Dgraph being a true graph backend-as-a-service, where GraphQL is the database. With facets in the wind and no plan for recursive traversals it’s becoming clear to me that that isn’t a practical reality any time soon.
So now I’m back to making the technology decisions I’d make with any graph DB, and one of those is query language. If I’m going to write some custom resolvers that hit my DB, I’d pick Gremlin over DQL. It’s standard, familiar, and portable (and–while this is purely preference–it’s actually a bit harder on me for DQL to be like-but-not-quite-the-same as GraphQL. I’m constantly confusing functions and directives!). I should probably even throw SPARQL in here.
