- Written in Go
- Easy to get running (3 or 4 commands, below)
- or a REPL if you prefer
- Built-in query editor and visualizer
- Multiple query languages:
- Plays well with multiple backend stores:
- Modular design; easy to extend with new languages and backends
- Good test coverage
- Speed, where possible.
