How to get nebula2-python

Option one: clone from GitHub

  • Clone from GitHub
git clone https://github.com/vesoft-inc/nebula-python.git
cd nebula-python
  • Install
sudo python3 setup.py install

When your environment cannot access pypi, you need to install the following packages manually.

pip install -r requirements.txt

dev version

pip install -r requirements-dev.txt

Option two: using pip

pip install nebula2-python==$version

Quick example to use graph-client to connect graphd

from nebula2.gclient.net import ConnectionPool
from nebula2.Config import Config

# define a config
config = Config()
config.max_connection_pool_size = 10
# init connection pool
connection_pool = ConnectionPool()
# if the given servers are ok, return true, else return false
ok = connection_pool.init([('127.0.0.1', 9669)], config)

# option 1 control the connection release yourself
# get session from the pool
session = connection_pool.get_session('root', 'nebula')

# select space
session.execute('USE nba')

# show tags
result = session.execute('SHOW TAGS')
print(result)

# release session
session.release()

# option 2 with session_context, session will be released automatically
with connection_pool.session_context('root', 'nebula') as session:
    session.execute('USE nba')
    result = session.execute('SHOW TAGS')
    print(result)

# close the pool
connection_pool.close()

Quick example to use storage-cleint to scan vertex and edge

You should make sure the scan client can connect to the address of storage which see from SHOW HOSTS

from nebula2.mclient import MetaCache
from nebula2.sclient.GraphStorageClient import GraphStorageClient

# the metad servers's address
meta_cache = MetaCache([('172.28.1.1', 9559),
                        ('172.28.1.2', 9559),
                        ('172.28.1.3', 9559)],
                       50000)
graph_storage_client = GraphStorageClient(meta_cache)

resp = graph_storage_client.scan_vertex(
        space_name='ScanSpace',
        tag_name='person')
while resp.has_next():
    result = resp.next()
    for vertex_data in result:
        print(vertex_data)
        
resp = graph_storage_client.scan_edge(
    space_name='ScanSpace',
    edge_name='friend')
while resp.has_next():
    result = resp.next()
    for edge_data in result:
        print(edge_data)
