LynxKite

LynxKite is a complete graph data science platform for very large graphs and other datasets. It seamlessly combines the benefits of a friendly graphical interface and a powerful Python API.

  • Hundreds of scalable graph operations, including graph metrics like PageRank, embeddedness, and centrality, machine learning methods including GCNs, graph segmentations like modular clustering, and various transformation tools like aggregations on neighborhoods.
  • The two main data types are graphs and relational tables. Switch back and forth between the two as needed to describe complex logical flows. Run SQL on both.
  • A friendly web UI for building powerful pipelines of operation boxes. Define your own custom boxes to structure your logic.
  • Tight integration with Python lets you implement custom transformations or create whole workflows through a simple API.
  • Integrates with the Hadoop ecosystem. Import and export from CSV, JSON, Parquet, ORC, JDBC, Hive, or Neo4j.
  • Fully documented.
  • Proven in production on large clusters and real datasets.
  • Fully configurable graph visualizations and statistical plots. Experimental 3D and ray-traced graph renderings.

LynxKite is under active development. Check out our Roadmap to see what we have planned for future releases.

Getting started

Quick try:

docker run --rm -p2200:2200 lynxkite/lynxkite

Setup with persistent data:

docker run \
  -p 2200:2200 \
  -v ~/lynxkite/meta:/metadata -v ~/lynxkite/data:/data \
  -e KITE_MASTER_MEMORY_MB=1024 \
  --name lynxkite lynxkite/lynxkite

If you find any bugs, have any questions, feature requests or comments, please file an issue or email us at lynxkite@lynxkite.com.

To build LynxKite you will need:

Before the first build:

tools/git/setup.sh
tools/install_spark.sh
sphynx/python/install-dependencies.sh
cp conf/kiterc_template ~/.kiterc

We use make for building the whole project.

make
stage/bin/lynxkite interactive

Tests

We have test suits for the different parts of the system:

  • Backend tests are unit tests for the Scala code. They can also be executed with Sphynx as the backend. If you run make backend-test it will do both. Or you can start sbt and run test-only *SomethingTest to run just one test. Run ./test_backend.sh -si to start sbt with Sphynx as the backend.

  • Frontend tests use Protractor to simulate a user's actions on the UI. make frontend-test will build everything, start a temporary LynxKite instance and run the tests against that. Use xvfb-run for headless execution. If you already have a running LynxKite instance and you don't mind erasing all data from it, run npx gulp test in the web directory. You can start up a dev proxy that watches the frontend source code for changes with npx gulp serve. Run the test suite against the dev proxy with npx gulp test:serve.

  • Python API tests are started with make remote_api-test. If you already have a running LynxKite that is okay to test on, run python/remote_api/test.sh. This script can also run a subset of the test suite: python/remote_api/test.sh -p *something*
