In this post we introduce the basics of a graph database and how to access it from Python. The database system used for storing and querying the data is ArangoDB, which was briefly described in a previous blog post. The Python driver of choice, as referenced in the official documentation, is Python-Arango; which can be accessed via its GitHub page.
