The neo4j gem contains two Rails Active Model compliant classes:
They also implement a small subset of the Active Record API.
The neo4j gem uses the
neo4j-wrapper and the
- Persistence and Callbacks
- Find using a Lucene index
- Third Party Gems
- Scaffolding & Generators
Generate a Rails Application
Example of creating a Neo4j Application from scratch: (make sure you have installed JRuby version >= 1.6.2)
gem install rails rails new myapp -m http://neo4jrb.github.com/neo4j/rails.rb -O cd myapp bundle rails generate scaffold User name:string email:string rails s open a webbrowser: http://localhost:3000/users
The -O flag above means that it will skip active record.
See Neo4j::Rails-Config for how to use rails console with write support.
