@ralph-tice not yet, but I promise it won't be long :)

we are thinking of pitching angulilos to the cassovary team ( https://github.com/twitter/cassovary ) since we want to use angulilos-titan...

sounds good
but I'm not sure about what exactly you have in mind

we have our own domain (so not bioinformatics) but intend to use titan, and like the angulilos graph representation ... no matter what we did we'd have to translate between cassovary's graph and titan, so it seems worthwhile to use something already established for that kind of purpose

OK I see. Yes that could work.

one nice side affect would be that your project would gain the ability to use cassovary's algorithms if they apply in your domain :)

yep, we actually looked into cassovary several times for testing and related stuff
that would be nice
feel free to ping me if you get to start working on that and think that we could help with something

that's why i asked about roadmap before, i saw mention of a scala version of angulilos? is that a thing still being planned, or in dev, or ?

It's mostly finished, together with a titan implementation
We want to release it before the end of March
It's been delayed basically because we were having a lot of issues with (certain kind of) super-nodes in Titan
I will write something anyway, ASAP
roadmap I mean

that's awesome to hear ... i am a little scared of whether or not we'll have a ton of supernodes or not, i'm afraid we will :(
is this work being done in the open, or 'release' means make public ?

I mean make it public. It was something really experimental when I started it, and wanted to be sure that it could be done before making it public.
About supernodes I still think that Titan is the least bad option that I've worked with
But is fat from perfect
