Neo4j Movies Example Application - The neo4jrestclient Edition


  • neo4jrestclient - Neo4j Python driver

  • Flask - Python microframework based on Werkzeug, Jinja 2 and good intentions.

  • Neo4j-Server

  • Frontend: jquery, bootstrap, d3.js


First get yourself setup with virtualenv so we don’t break any other Python stuff you have on your machine. After you’ve got that installed let’s setup an environment for our app:

$ virtualenv neo4jrestclient-movies
$ source neo4jrestclient-movies/bin/activate

The next step is to install the dependencies for the app:

(neo4jrestclient-movies)$ pip install -r requirements.txt

Run locally

Start your local Neo4j Server (Download & Install), open the Neo4j Browser. Then install the Movies data-set with :play movies, click the statement, and hit the triangular "Run" button.

And finally let’s start up a Flask web server:

(neo4jrestclient-movies)$ python
 * Running on

Navigate to http://localhost:8080 and you should see your first Neo4j application
