Property Graphs

A property graph is a graph-based data structure where either nodes or edges can have properties (i.e., key/value pairs). Property graphs are commonly used by graph databases (e.g., Neo4j), and related tools (e.g., Gremlin).

Although I haven't seen any discussion of the idea, Elixir seems like an interesting tool for modeling property graphs. Each node and edge could be represented by a lightweight process and message-based algorithms could be used to process information. This web discusses various aspects of this idea.
