Are indexes on the roadmap? What would it take to implement them?

I have not yet worked with neo4j indexes, as all my projects rely on elasticsearch for data indexing. But I guess it would not be too much work. Have you thought about the api to access the index? How would you like to have it?

@mindeavor

Sorry for the delay, I've been sick recently.

My use case is unique usernames. It'd be nice to write a simple index :username similar to neo4j.rb. On the other hand, neo4j has support for unique indexes, so maybe it'd be better to have that separate from normal indexes (perhaps like unique :username?).

What are your thoughts? I'm new to neo4j, so my opinion doesn't weigh too much.

@alank64

neoid gem has an index implementation, not too sure the code would help but the usage is quite clean, inside the model you define a block with the fields you want to have indexed, a .fulltext and .exact is used to define each one. Actually when I think about it, it looks a little like how you define them using thinking_sphinx.
