I have an in-memory graph created using the
I want to add a property to some of the nodes in the graph.
Simply setting the properties of those nodes after creating the graph doesn't work.
I would need to delete the graph and create it again to include the newly added properties.
I see that it is possible to add properties to an existing graph using the
mutate flavor of different algorithms.
It is possible to remove a property from an in-memory graph using the
Wouldn't it be helpful to have a
Here is one example. I run community detection. I create a graph using the existing nodes and their properties. I run mutate several times adding different communityIds, e.g. for louvain, wcc, scc. Then I decided to run labelPropagation and add a new property to my nodes to use as the seedProperty. However, this new property is not in the graph and cannot be used as the seedProperty. So I can either run using an anonymous graph or create a new graph, but the new graph will not have those communityIds created previously. It's definitely not a show-stopper, but it would useful to have.
