We provide a complete example on how to setup your graph database, connect to it, retrieve elements and display them in Ogma. And the best is that you can make it work in minutes. Let's get started:

git clone
cd ogma-oracle-parser

Setup the Database

The simplest way is to use the docker-compose file we provide, which will:

  • pull the Oracle Database 23c docker image
  • setup the users login/password
  • load a database
  • create a property graph

But first you will need to unzip the dataset.

cd example/compose-stack
docker compose up

And you are done ! You now have a container exposing the port 1521 on which you can execute SQL requests.

Start the server

cd example/server

You will need to provide your Ogma API key to be able to install Ogma via npm install. Either by modifying the package.json, either by running:

npm install --save<VERSION>/?secret=<YOUR_API_KEY>


npm install
npm run start

You now have an express app that answers to a few routes by querying your SQL database:

  • [GET] /nodes/:type Returns all nodes of a certain type. Type must match with the labels passed in your CREATE PROPERTY GRAPH call.
  • [GET] /edges/:types Returns all edges of a certain type.
  • [GET] /node/:id Returns the node corresponding to id. Id must be of the form: LABEL-ID.
  • [GET] /edge/:id Returns the edge corresponding to id
  • [GET /expand/:id Returns all the neighbors of the node refered by id.

Start the frontend

cd example/client

Same as for server, you will need to install Ogma by providing your API_KEY. Then you can just proceed:

npm install
npm run dev

You now have a frontend running on http://localhost:5174/ which displays the graph, allows you to look into nodes/edges properties by clicking on it, and expand nodes by double clicking on it.
