What types of data can I store in TypeDB?

Is it possible to store pictures, songs and sounds, movies, 3D objects or any other datatype in TypeDB?
How do I define them in the schema and how do I insert them in the database?

You’ll probably be best off creating a base-64 encoded string if you really wanted to do that, but you’ll run into the 16k character limit very quickly. For now we tend to advise storing a pointer to an external large data store inside TypeDB that your application knows how to utilise (eg. a file path, URL etc)
