I’m looking at implementing a large distributed graph database. So far, the plans have centred around SPARQL, given that it is a standard of sorts, and despite a few posts I see dgraph has no plans to support this.
I could make a shim and use SPARQL/dgraph, or use a different database, or perhaps just change plans and use graphql.
So the question is why not support SPARQL? Is there something inherently difficult with it and dgraph? Was it just a decision to go with one because there wasn’t bandwidth for both? Is there some inherent superiority of graphql over SPARQL?
It would be great to have some detail about this.
