Deploying a Grakn Instance on My Laptop

I have looked at the software, and I want to use it. How can I download it and start posting some of my results with it?

Hi @GraknWorld1000,

you only need to install Java 8 on your system: https://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/jdk8-downloads-2133151.html

and then you can download Grakn from https://grakn.ai/download#core

here some info on how to get started: https://dev.grakn.ai/docs/general/quickstart

Hi @marco thanks for that. I’ve got grakn installed and the server running. What should I do next? The “Install and Run” page links me to the “Configuration” and “Console” pages, but I am not sure what to do once there. Can you help me out?


it really depends on what you want to do with Grakn.

Here you can download Workbase which allows you to visualise all the data and schemas: https://github.com/graknlabs/workbase/releases
