Hey all, you can call me Yaya.
I'm in my mid-twenties and currently, I'm working on a Flutter app..
After spending some time with Firestore I've realized that it does not suit me well and that's how my journey started into looking into what do I need as a database to fulfill my need and make my app come to life, it all started with one google search "What is the best graph database" and that's how I was introduced into Neo4j (Luckily for me ), after spending some time reading, researching and working with Neo4j I was able to get my head wrapped around it and now I'm here in the community seeking help with the few issues/features that I'm still struggling with. I hope to be able to be as much of a helpful asset as I am someone in need.
Thank you so much and good luck to all of you. Yaya.
Hey @louis.deveseleer I'm so sorry for the late reply. I have just seen you message. I am indeed working with Both Flutter and Neo4j using Grandstack and Graphql-Flutter Package.
Let me know if you need any help. As for me everything seems to be working just fine. So if you need any help with Flutter, Neo4j or Grandstack let me know.
Hey thanks for your reply. I had issues reading my database with the graphql_flutter plugin (Graphql_flutter Failed to connect to local database) and in the end, because of the technical difficulties in general and lack of documentation, I went back to using Firebase, which is so easy in comparison. Good luck with your project!
Are you using Android for development ?? because if so then maybe you have to change the link from ( localhost:7474/graphql ) into ( ip-address:7474/graphql ). in the ip-address put your computer ip address.. I have faced the same issue and this has solved it for me. For android I use ip-address and for IOS i use localhost.
You can also do this in flutter.
import 'dart:io'; final GraphQLClient client = getClient( uri: Platform.isAndroid ? 'http://ip-address':7474/graphql : 'http://localhost:7474/graphql', );
That's the kind of help I was missing 🙂 I posted a link to your answer in my original post for reference.
Another issue I was facing was to install GraphQl on a server hosting the database (Difficulties installing neo4j-graphql on Google cloud server). It was easy on the desktop version, as there was simply a plugin to install, but I couldn't find exactly how to configure it for the server version.
I'm trying to connect my local neo4j database with flutter application using #grandstack and #graphql_flutter , all thing work done until I replace the line for the HttpLink
uri: 'https://countries.trevorblades.com/' (used for testing)
then i get this error on the app screen:
I'm about to kick-off a project with a flutter client talking to a graphql server that interfaces with a neo4j database. I haven't started yet, so I'm not sure I have any great advice for you, but my plan is to start with GRAND stack and just utilizing the backend server aspect of that project, and then using graphql-flutter. For further guidance, checkout the Neo4j youtube playlist about the GRAND stack here: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL9Hl4pk2FsvV_ojblDzXCg6gxdv437PGg
Let's keep in touch. I'd love to hear more about your progress and challenges.
To whoever may have landed on this page, I am about to open up a role for this exact stack.
Flutter, GraphQL, Neo4j
