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Note: This project is no longer maintained.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.

Prerequisites

The neo4j embedded database is a java application, which means you have to provide an interface to communicate with java-land. You need:

Documentation

The documentation contains more detailed help with installation, as well as examples and reference documentation.

See http://docs.neo4j.org/

Installation

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

Releasing

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.

python release.py
