Guide for beginners

Check out our guide to download and set up Grakn.

When you're set up, there's an introductory tutorial to show the basics of Graql and how to use the Java API.


We have a set of pages about Graql queries, and a cheatsheet as a handy reference.


The API reference is also available in the Grakn distribution that you can download from here, in the docs directory.

Additional API reference documents can be found here.
