Neo4j Bolt Driver for Python

This repository contains the official Neo4j driver for Python. Each driver release (from 4.0 upwards) is built specifically to work with a corresponding Neo4j release, i.e. that with the same major.minor version number. These drivers will also be compatible with the previous Neo4j release, although new server features will not be available.

Python 3.4 or above is required. Python 2 support has been dropped as of the Neo4j 4.0 release.

Installation

To install the latest stable version, use:

pip install neo4j

Quick Example

from neo4j import GraphDatabase

driver = GraphDatabase.driver("bolt://localhost:7687", auth=("neo4j", "password"))

def add_friend(tx, name, friend_name):
    tx.run("MERGE (a:Person {name: $name}) "
           "MERGE (a)-[:KNOWS]->(friend:Person {name: $friend_name})",
           name=name, friend_name=friend_name)

def print_friends(tx, name):
    for record in tx.run("MATCH (a:Person)-[:KNOWS]->(friend) WHERE a.name = $name "
                         "RETURN friend.name ORDER BY friend.name", name=name):
        print(record["friend.name"])

with driver.session() as session:
    session.write_transaction(add_friend, "Arthur", "Guinevere")
    session.write_transaction(add_friend, "Arthur", "Lancelot")
    session.write_transaction(add_friend, "Arthur", "Merlin")
    session.read_transaction(print_friends, "Arthur")
