BaseParadigm / edges

An Edge is a sextuple with, as you may have guessed, six fields. Edges are used to relate nodes to each other. Edges are extensible, and commonly actually have two extra fields (digital signatures, and a graph of properties for the nodes on the edge). The six standard fields are necessary for producing patterns in the graph so that people can extract subgraphs. Signatures and properties fields are not queried for.

standard graph fields

Subjects

A starting point. Edges are often discovered through their subjects.

Predicates

A description of the relationship. What is the purpose of the edge? Predicates are commonly known to the client ahead of time.

Objects

Something the client may not have already encountered.

Authors

Who created the edge?

Assumptions

What knowledge precludes the usefulness of this edge?

Patterns

How will the client continue to use this edge? What will they query for next?

Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for ProjectModifiedEvent.java.
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
Tip: Use ↑ and ↓ arrow keys to navigate and return to view the file.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Ctrl+j (next) and Ctrl+k (previous) and view the file with Ctrl+o.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Alt+j (next) and Alt+k (previous) and view the file with Alt+o.
