By ensuring that you have PostgreSQL, Apache AGE, Git, and Node.js installed and configured correctly, you'll be ready to proceed with the installation of AGE viewer from source code on your Windows machine.
What is Apache AGE ?
Apache AGE is a graph database system that is built on top of PostgreSQL. It allows users to store, manage, and analyze large-scale graph data in a highly performant and scalable way.
Apache AGE combines the benefits of a powerful relational database management system (PostgreSQL) with the flexibility and scalability of a graph database. This means that users can store their data in a relational format and also perform graph-based queries and analyses on the data.
What is Apache-Age Viewer
Apache-Age Viewer is a web based user interface that provides visualization of graph data stored in a PostgreSQL database with AGE extension. It is graph visualization tool, for Apache AGE .
