What are the challenges of building an Arango DB GUI?

ArrowSmDown 16px

  • Complexity: ArangoDB is a multi-model database that supports document, graph, and key-value data models. Building a GUI that can handle and display all of these data models in a user-friendly way can be challenging.

  • Engineering bandwidth: Giving your end users the abilities they require to view and do CRUD operations on the data in a secure manner without increasing dependency on engineering resources.

  • Data management: Ensure your data is stored and processed in a way that complies with your organization's policies and regulations.

  • Security: A GUI must ensure that sensitive data is protected and only accessible to authorized users. Proper authentication and authorization for users with different roles and permissions so they can only access data meant for their use can be challenging and time-consuming to build.

  • Interoperability: The GUI should be able to work seamlessly or integrate with other tools and applications that are used in conjunction with the database.
