Example application to connect Neo4j to Facebook using the Neography Gem.


  • You will need to get a Facebook Consumer Key and Secret on
  • Select the "user_likes", "user_location", "friend_likes", "friend_location" permissions.
  • You will need Neo4j in order for your database.
  • You will need Redis in order to use Sidekiq for background jobs.


git clone
bundle install
sudo apt-get install redis-server or brew install redis
rake neo4j:install['enterprise','1.8.M07']
rake neo4j:start
export SESSION_SECRET=<your session secret>
export FACEBOOK_APP_ID=<your facebook app id>
