Neo4j Python REST Client
:synopsis: Object-oriented Python library to interact with Neo4j standalone REST server.
The first objective of Neo4j Python REST Client is to make transparent for
Python programmers the use of a local database through python-embedded_ or a
remote database thanks to Neo4j REST Server. So, the syntax of this API is
fully compatible with python-embedded. However, a new syntax is introduced in
order to reach a more pythonic style.
Available throught Python Package Index::
$ pip install neo4jrestclient
$ easy_install neo4jrestclient
`Getting started`_
The main class is *GraphDatabase*, exactly how in python-embedded_:
.. code:: python
>>> from neo4jrestclient.client import GraphDatabase
>>> gdb = GraphDatabase("http://localhost:7474/db/data/")
Due to the syntax is fully compatible with python-embedded_, the next lines only show
the commands added and its differences.
Creating a node:
.. code:: python
>>> n = gdb.nodes.create()
# Equivalent to
>>> n = gdb.node()
Specify properties for new node:
.. code:: python
>>> n = gdb.nodes.create(color="Red", width=16, height=32)
Accessing properties:
.. code:: python
>>> value = n['key'] # Get property value
>>> n['key'] = value # Set property value
Create relationship:
.. code:: python
>>> n1.relationships.create("Knows", n2) # Useful when the name of
# relationship is stored in a variable
Specify properties for new relationships:
.. code:: python
>>> n1.Knows(n2, since=123456789, introduced_at="Christmas party")
