I’m new to DGraph and to Graph Databases generally so apologies if my terminology/knowledge isn’t great.
One of the core design features of the software I want to build is that superusers are able to update the database schema.
For example we might have a person type with a first name, last name etc. and they want to record the date of birth as well. So they can go to a form, create a field that’s a date time and submit their request and then the web server / api checks that’s all fine and make that request to the database.
Now the fields they’re creating themselves might have “custom properties” for its own uses, which aren’t part of the core dgraph schema e.g. I know we can store data in multiple languages in dgraph, but what about storing the name of the field “first name” in multiple languages? what about if I want to store custom flags for the field, for example, which user groups have permission to modify it etc.
I just wanted to query the best way to do this in dgraph. Is the schema in dgraph itself a graph that can have properties and relationships for example?
