That’s a good question. Initially, we developed Graph Builder to solve the problem of
constructing graphs from various data sources with different formats at scale. The scope
of the tool has only increased. We envision Graph Builder to evolve into a graph ETL
toolkit which will include a library of import, extract, transform and export operators
for graph. For example, the library can be used to
· Import data from a set of parquet files in HDFS
· Filter in all data related to Country Code = USA
· Calculate the join of multiple data files to correlate sales figures for every
· Export the graph to a graph database such as Titan or a graph execution engine
such as GraphLab
This is the vision that we are pursuing in our group and hopefully the open source
community around Graph Builder can help us enrich it with new ideas and codebases.

Question, will GB grow beyond just Graph construction library?

Yepp.. I guess lots of time I spend enormous time in transforming formats between
Graphchi requires Market Matrix (which is not standard MM format), Graphlab requires
egelist.. Giraph has different input..
Lots of time, I just want to evaluate the performance of a framework but I spend alot of
time juggling these formats.
It would be awesome, if it can read tons of input formats and has out of the box support
for atleast these popular frameworks?
What can I expect in the next release? and when is the next release?

The project is alive. We are making a lot of changes in the GB code internally, hence the
Is there anything you were particularly looking for?

Hi GB team,
I dont see any stories,code pushes,future features or any activity?
Is this project still going on or is it already dead?
