Property Graph Database Shapes
Submitted by bug..@..zi.org
Currently it is not possible to design a property graph database model nicely in dia because a good line type is missing. I'm using UML class but this is not perfect either.
A good example what a property graph model is https://github.com/thinkaurelius/titan/wiki/Getting-Started
type definition looks like https://github.com/thinkaurelius/titan/wiki/Type-Definition-Overview
Other graph databases like Neo4j basically support the same. One thing to remember is, that keys of attributes don't need to be unique (like LDAP), but can be, depending on the type definiton.
It would be wonderful if dia would support this type of data model as graph databases becoming more popular and there is no usable tool out there :-)
