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?

@GraknWorld1000

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
