TopicDB - Open Source Graph Topic Map-Based Graph Database

For a more in-depth introduction to topic maps, I recommend reading the excellent introductory article on topic maps over at MSDN: An Introduction to Topic Maps. With that being said, although TopicDB is based on the topic maps paradigm, it is not an implementation of the ISO/IEC 13250 Topic Maps standard.


TopicDB officially supports Python 3.3–3.6. To install TopicDB, simply:

$ pip install topic-db

Both documentation and an in-depth tutorial will be available soon.
