Project description


Extension Flask for integration with neo4j graph database


Using pip:

Basic Step to usage this extension:

  1. Create Flask app instance:
import bcrypt
from py2neo import ogm
from flask import Flask, request
from flask2neo4j import Flask2Neo4J

app = Flask(__name__)

  1. Add NEO4J Config and Initialization Flask2Neo4j Extensions:

app.config["NEO4J_USERNAME"] = "neo4j"
app.config["NEO4J_PASSWORD"] = "neo4j"
app.config["NEO4J_URI"] = "bolt://localhost:7687"

flask2neo = Flask2Neo4J()


  1. Create Model using Graph Object if using GraphObject
class Users(ogm.GraphObject):
    __primarykey__ = "id"

    id = ogm.Property()
    username = ogm.Property("username")
    password = ogm.Property("password")

    def create_password(self, password):
        self.password = str(bcrypt.encrypt(password))

    def is_exist(self):
        return flask2neo.graph.exists(self)

    def save(self):
        if self.is_exist:
  1. Define function register as flask request method POST
@app.route("/register", methods=["POST"])
def register():
