Neo4py is a better alternative to py2neo.

Project description


A proper documentation to neo4py is available here.


Neo4py is an alternative to py2neo. I am trying my best to make it a perfect and better clone of the py2neo package.

How to run a query in neo4py

As it is a clone of py2neo so, I have added the similar functions like of py2neo so, that the users won't have the problem in migrating from py2neo to neo4py.

These are the steps you can use to execute a query in neo4py:

  1. First install neo4j using either pip or uv.
pip install neo4j

# or you can use uv for this

uv pip install neo4j

  1. Import the Graph class from the neo4py.

from neo4py.neo4py import Graph

  1. Create a graph object and pass your URI, and connection details to the Graph constructor.

graph = Graph("connection_uri",("user","db_password"))

# Example code
graph = Graph("bolt://localhost:7687",("neo4j","12345678"))

You can find your connection uri and user details, when you'll start your database and open neo4j browser. Password is the password that you have set while creating the database.

  1. Now make a python dictionary, pass the data to it, and run and write the query by using built-in run method.

data = {
    "name" : "John Doe",
    "age": 21
node ="CREATE (p:Person {name:$name,age:$age})", **data)

Final Words

Special Thanks to Aaron Moffatt for letting me acquire the name, "neo4py"
