Just wanted to share a bit of excitement I had tonight. I've been doing a lot of work in Apache Zeppelin Notebook Server lately, mostly just in PySpark and SQL. But then driving home tonight I had the curious idea if Zeppelin could connect to Neo4j. I've used Neo4j's jdbc driver in the past to ETL from pentaho to Neo4j so I suspected that Zeppelin could as well. To my excitement, it worked!
I'll write up a more detailed blog post but referencing my post about setting up pentaho and this reference for creating an interpreter in zeppelin, you can execute cypher statements in paragraph in a notebook server.
This is will be exciting to be able to leverage the reporting and story telling ability of a notebook server to query data from a variety of sources including Neo4j! I'm curious if anyone else has already done this, and I'm just late the game and this was already common knowledge to everyone else?
