Getting started with the neo4j batch importer
These are accompanying notes for the getting started with neo4j batch importer video.
Pre video steps
Download neo4j - I used version 1.9.1 in the video but any of the 1.9.* series should be fine.
Create nodes and relationships files. I ran the following commands:
bundle exec ruby generate-nodes.rb bundle exec ruby generate-relationships.rb
which uses bundler - a ruby tool used to manage dependencies. This step can be replaced with your own CSV generating code.
Terminal history from the video
