To quickly test out SurrealDB and SurrealQL functionality, we've included demo data here in .surql files which you can download and import into SurrealDB using the CLI

Surreal Deal - deals so good it's surreal!

Surreal Deal is a demo dataset based on a simplified e-commerce platform that sells artwork. The dataset is made up of 8 tables using both graph relations and record links: person, order, product, review, artist, create, avg_product_review, daily_sales.

In the diagram below, the nodes in pink are the standard tables, the ones in purple represent the edge tables which shows relationships between records and SurrealDB as a graph database. While the nodes in gray are the pre-computed table views.
