Python bindings for embedded Neo4j
Note: This project is no longer maintained. The approach with JPype was not workable. Please have a look at some of the alternatives available at http://neo4j.com/developer/python/
These are Python bindings for the embedded Neo4j Graph Database.
The neo4j embedded database is a java application, which means you have to provide an interface to communicate with java-land. You need:
- CPython with JPype installed http://jpype.sourceforge.net/
The documentation contains more detailed help with installation, as well as examples and reference documentation.
pip install neo4j-embedded
Installation from source
To install neo4j-embedded from this source tree, use the maven build tool to produce the python distribution, then install the distribution normally:
mvn package unzip target/neo4j-python-embedded-[VERSION]-python-dist.zip cd neo4j-embedded python setup.py install
Make sure you have a .pypirc file in your home folder with correct login information for the neo4j-embedded package on pypi.python.org. The release builds windows installers, so it needs to run on a windows machine.
