GRIP Plugin External Resources

GRIP Plugin External Resources (GRIPPERs) are GRIP drivers that take external resources and allow GRIP to access them are part of a unified graph. To integrate new resources into the graph, you first deploy griper proxies that plug into the external resources. They are unique and configured to access specific resources. These provide a view into external resources as a series of document collections. For example, an SQL gripper would plug into an SQL server and provide the tables as a set of collections with each every row a document. A gripper is written as a gRPC server.
