Neo4j-graphql library in other languages


(Ainsausti) #1

Hi,

are there any plans to develop this libary, neo4j-graphql, in other languages like python?

If so, do you know the ETA?

Thanks in advance.

I think we're mostly focusing on Javascript for now...but for Python you could always try out the server side GraphQL plugin in the mean time. Not sure if you've seen that - https://github.com/neo4j-graphql/neo4j-graphql

Also cc'ing @William_Lyon who runs all things GraphQL at Neo

We don't currently have plans to implement neo4j-graphql in Python. We're focusing on building out all the features we want in neo4j-graphql-js first and then will develop a plan for porting to other languages.

As Mark points out you could use the GraphQL database plugin to have the GraphQL ---> Cypher generation logic in Neo4j itself: https://grandstack.io/docs/neo4j-graphql-plugin.html

Also, there was a good article showing how to use GraphQL with Neo4j and Python using Graphene (a Python GraphQL library) and the Py2neo OGM: https://medium.com/elements/diving-into-graphql-and-neo4j-with-python-244ec39ddd94

Are you abandoning development on the plugin? I haven't seen a commit in 5 months and the issue backlog grows slowly but steadily.

No, not abandoning. There's been some recent work to update for Neo4j v3.5, for example:

Currently the immediate plan in JVM-land for GraphQL is to extract some of the GraphQL --> Cypher query translation logic from the plugin into a separate library.
