Writing Neo4j Console

So, Neo4j Console is now open sourced at: https://github.com/tournr/n... feel free to branch, fix, edit whatever and issue pull requests, or even just have a gander and code review :) I thought I’d write some notes on what I’ve done and why. Let’s split it into 2 main areas, UI and Backend. The UI Extremely simple WPF front end – I mean – it’s only got 3 text boxes! If I’m honest, it’s not what I want – I want to create a console window like the F# console, something which really does act ......

The Neo4j 1.9 to 2.0 Upgrade

So, with Neo4j 2.0 on the near horizon (RC1 out), it seemed appropriate to upgrade all my current codebase from 1.9 to 2.0. Generally, as a rule of thumb, the conversion has been pretty smooth, there are some pre-2.0 gaffs I’ve made which have made it slightly harder than it needed to be – but the ability to use 1.9 cypher in 2.0 db is incredibly useful.

Gist: https://gist.github.com/csk... I know! Another question on StackOverflow leads to yet another blog post being updated to use the newer Neo4jClient. So here goes: Darko Micics has written a post about using Neo4jClient with C#.Net, and a question has arisen on StackOverflow asking about how to (in effect) do this in the new version of the Neo4JClient – the version where ‘CreateRelationship’ et al have been marked as obsolete. Luckily, this is a pretty simple (twitter-ish) data set ......
