Neo4j Integration Demo
This demo shows how to load data from a Neo4j database and display it with yFiles for
First, connect to a Neo4j database by entering a URL, a username, and a password into the
corresponding form fields, then click the Connect button.
After establishing a connection, a small set of data from the database will be displayed.
Things to Try
Explore the data: Change the viewport by dragging the canvas with the mouse and change
the zoom level by using the mouse wheel.
Click on a node to select it, which will show its labels and properties in the
properties view on the right.
Double click on a node to load more nodes that are connected to it, if any are
Hover over a node to highlight the adjacent edges. Hover over an edge to highlight the
- Toggle the display of edge labels using the "Show Edge Labels" checkbox.
Move the sliders for the maximum node count and label diversity and then click the
Reload Data button to query the database for a new set of data.
Warning: Retrieving data with the sliders set to high might
take a really long time (2 minutes and more) or might yield no results at all,
depending on the database.
Enter a custom Cypher query into the editor in the right, then click the "Run Cypher
Query" button. Every node and relationship that is returned by that query will be
visualized as a graph and will replace the current visualization.
This demo uses the
to connect to a Neo4j database and query it for data.
The query results are then used by a GraphBuilder with a custom
configuration to construct a graph from the data, while assigning different node styles to
nodes with different labels.
The maximum node count setting limits the number of nodes that are queried from the
database, while the label diversity setting determines the length of the distinct node
label sequences that is searched for.
The graph layout is achieved by using OrganicLayout with substructures
