Franz releases AllegroGraph 7.3

Franz Inc., an early innovator in Artificial Intelligence (AI) and supplier of Graph Database technology for Entity-Event Knowledge Graph Solutions, announced AllegroGraph 7.3, with enhanced GraphQL query capabilities for distributed Knowledge Graphs and Enterprise Data Fabrics. With AllegroGraph’s GraphQL APIs, developers can create performant and more complex data-driven applications. GraphQL’s capability to fetch the exact and specific data in a single request delivers flexibility to Knowledge Graph developers.

AllegroGraph’s GraphQL Support GraphQL is an open-source data query language for APIs and a runtime for fulfilling queries with data. It allows API clients to query data as a graph irrespective of how the data is stored, making it possible to loosely couple data sources with client applications. GraphQL provides a complete and understandable description of the data in the API, gives clients the power to ask for exactly what they need and nothing more, and makes it easier to evolve APIs over time. Using GraphQL APIs within AllegroGraph can lower integration costs and minimize redundancy in enterprise systems, while improving the value of data-driven applications. AllegroGraph 7.3 is immediately available directly from Franz Inc.


Gilbane Advisor 5-18-22 — fediverse, web apps, languages

This week we feature articles from Richard MacManus, and Chris Nielsen.

Additional reading comes from Alan Morrison, Mikkel Dengsøe, and Isaac Caswell & Ankur Bapna.

News comes from Google Translate, Acquia, Cloudflare, and Elastic Search.

Opinion / Analysis

Does the fediverse point to our social media future?

Well, perhaps. There is certainly much that is appealing about the open source, standards-based, decentralized approach to social and web publishing and it’s most popular app, Mastodon. Richard MacManus is cautiously optimistic and correctly judicious regarding the timeframe in his answer (6 min).

I replaced my native iOS app with a cross-platform web app and no one noticed

Chris Nielsen was shocked that performance was not an issue when he built a web app version of his animation-heavy iOS app. He was also pleasantly surprised to find the web app caused fewer bugs than the native version. Web apps have caught up to native apps in many/most ways, so if you are still maintaining three code bases you should take another look as Nielsen did (8 min).
