Low Level C++ Driver for ArangoDB

Geek Repo:Geek Repo

Github PK Tool:Github PK Tool


Fuerte is a c++ library that allows you to communicate with a ArangoDB database over the http and velocystream (optionally ssl encrypted) protocols.


Fuerte is a communication library only. You will get what the other side is sending you. No conversion is done! When receiving a message fuerte provides content type and payload. In case the payload is velocypack you can access the slices with slices() when using the c++ driver. The node driver will always provide the payload as it is.

Fuerte itself is designed to be mostly thread-safe. Creating and destroying the fuerte Connection objects must be externally synchronized, otherwise the fuerte::Connection methods are thread-safe.

Connections can handle multiple "producer" threads concurrently sending requests. Of course it depends on the underlying protocol implementation how "concurrent" requests really are. The velocystream protocol allows for full duplex communication, the HTTP only for half duplex communication.

Build requirements

The following development packages need to be installed

  • C++ 17 compiler
  • VelocyPack
  • cmake 3.4
  • Boost Libraries 1.71 (older might work too)

VelocyPack source can be obtained from GitHub using the following git command into your chosen directory git clone https://github.com/arangodb/velocypack Boost can be installed via the package manager of your choice

mkdir build; cd build
cmake .. \
      -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Debug \
make -j4

To add for example the address sanitzer for clang you can add LDFLAGS="-fsanitize=address" CXXFLAGS="-fsanitize=address" in front of the cmake command.

Usage example

#include <fuerte/fuerte.h>
#include <velocystream/Slice.h>

int main(){
    using namespace arangodb::fuerte;
    EventLoopService eventLoopService;
    auto conn = ConnectionBuilder().host("vst://localhost:8529")
    auto request = fu::createRequest(fu::RestVerb::Get, "/_api/version");
    auto result = _connection->sendRequest(std::move(request));
    auto slice = result->slices().front();
    std::cout << slice.get("version").copyString();
    std::cout << slice.get("server").copyString();

Project status

Basic functionality of the c++ driver is implemented and used in ArangoDB >= 3.4

At the moment the node driver is not maintained.
