Set up ArangoDB

Installation (See official documentation Here)

  • Download Link
  • Run it with /usr/local/sbin/arangod The default installation contains one database _system and a user named root
  • Create a user and database for the project with the arangosh shell
arangosh> db._createDatabase("DB_NAME");
arangosh> var users = require("@arangodb/users");
arangosh>"DB_USER", "DB_PASSWORD");
arangosh> users.grantDatabase("DB_USER", "DB_NAME");

It is a good practice to create a test db and a development db.

  • you can connect to the newly created db with
$> arangosh --server.username $DB_USER --server.database $DB_NAME
