Adding Sample Data: Part 2

In order to add predicates of type ref to our sample data, we can reference existing subjects using their _id or a unique two-tuple. We can also reference subjects that haven't been created yet by using their temporary ids.

Referencing Tempids

For example, if we want to create a person and artists at the same time, and list those artists in the person's favorite artists, we'll need to use tempids.

"_id": "person",
"handle": "artSnob",
"fullName": "Artemus Snoberson",
"favArtists": ["artist$basquiat", "artist$savage"]
"_id": "artist$basquiat",
"name": "Jean-Michel Basquiat"
"_id": "artist$savage",
"name": "August Savage"
