git clone https://github.com/maxdemarzi/neo_crunch.git cd neo_crunch bundle install rake neo4j:install rake neo4j:start rake neo4j:create (this could take a while) rackup
To put this on heroku, you can run neo4j:create to get fresh data, and:
cd neo_crunch/neo4j/data/graph.db zip -r crunchbase.zip *
or use the existing crunchbase.zip with data as of November 12th, 2012.
heroku apps:create heroku addons:add neo4j:try git push heroku master
Then go to your Heroku apps https://dashboard.heroku.com/apps/ find your app, and go to your Neo4j add-on. In the Back-up and Restore section click "choose file", find the crunchbase.zip file and click submit. Reload your app to see it running.
