Does dgraph embedded will come back?

I am trying to pick graph database for a small project, so far I am trying to evaluate this

  • Cayley
  • DGraph
  • Orientdb
  • Arangodb

At the moment I am playing with Cayley, actually I already played with DGraph, but somewhat get discourage about the lack of user auth, but @mrjn say on this post it is already in the plan.

For now, I dont want to commit on Cayley, but does the DGraph embedded will comeback?
I did browse the repo few minutes ago, then found 3 closed issue about this feature that has been added to a labels 14 days ago. especially this one #673 the label feature was added last March 22.

I just want to confirm if it will comeback?


If you use k8s, you can “fix” user auth by an nginx proxy with authentication that routes to a headless service for dgraph server. That is the solution we’re going to use the short term.

We don’t have any plans to bring Dgraph embedded back. You could use the password type in Dgraph to implement auth.

hmmm let me check it
