Is it py2neo dead?


(Marcdexet Cnrs) #1


I'm trying to demonstrate neo4j capacities for scientists (from nuclear physic to human sciences).
These people heavily use python, so I try to use py2neo to show the potential.

It works, but there's serious bugs. The github project is asleep, there's no commit from august and a lot of issues.

So the question is :is it py2neo dead ?

I know this is a open source project, based on contribution, and everybody make its best. Thanks to Nigel Small to have created py2neo, it's an impressive work.

Could I recommend py2neo to be a solid tool for scientist ?

It's not dead, it's just resting.

I don't get a great deal of time to work on it these days but the project is still alive as far as I'm concerned.

Happy to read it :slight_smile:

If you have time ( Yeap, I just leaved the Christmas buffet for my kids, I'm still in the Santa spirit :) ) could you take a look to, you'll save my day.

I fought with the bare neo4j python driver, and since I love py2neo stronger.

Good evening

It looks like the highest priority problem to fix is my having broken the requirements/setup in the last release. I foolishly merged in an experimental branch that brought in requirements for ipython/jupyter and has broken all the things.

I'll look at this as well as your problem over the coming week.
