Teach the Network
For example if a customer make a purchase of a product you assume a relation between customer.id and product.id, so you connect them. Optional you can specify a distance between nodes, to represent how close the nodes are related.
- connect - connect two nodes
- delete - delete a connection
Nodes are created automatically when you do the connection, and removed if they do not have any more connections. So do not worry about them.
Ask the Network
Now you can query all kinds of relations, not only the once you taught. With select you specify a starting point, like customer.id and specify the category where you like to know its closes relation.
- select - gives you the best related nodes from a specified category
The searching query takes into account all the different routes up to a radius you specify.
Lets imagine we already have a table customer
and you want to teach the network about recent purchases.
from MyNQL import MyNQL mynql = MyNQL('store') mynql.connect('customer.juan', 'product.jeans') mynql.connect('customer.juan', 'product.socks') mynql.connect('customer.maria', 'product.socks')
If the column Name is unique you can use it as a key, otherwise you would need column Id, and your code would look like this:
Now you can ask questions from other points of view. You always specify a starting point, and the category where you want to know the best matches:
>>> mynql.select('customer.maria', 'product') ['socks', 'jeans']
Maria is more connected to socks, as she has a direct connection, but also a bit to jeans as there exist an indirect connection through Juan.
>>> mynql.select('product.jeans', 'product') ['socks']
Any combination is valid. For example you can ask about how one product is related to other.
Storage is done in memory, but if you want to use MySQL, SQLite or PostgreSQL as a backend take a look at test/pee_example.py. This will keep a copy of all updates in your database.
