    How to work with her?

    Two interfaces are available for working with Globals out of the box: for Java and node.js.
    Distributions and examples of work can be found here .
    Since GlobalsDB is a sparse index data array, using this engine it is possible to implement arbitrary database forms. In particular, any key-value and document-based solutions are implemented, there are examples of implementation of a graph database.
