SQL Alchemy dialect for Neo4j

Project description

SQL Alchemy dialect for Neo4j

This package provides the SQL dialect for Neo4j, using the official JDBC driver (the Neo4j "BI Connector" )


pip install sqlalchemy-neo4j


  • Java 8 / 11
  • Download the Neo4j BI Connector

    The reason the JAR is not included in the package is due to licensing concerns. I may add the jar into the bundle in the future.

  • Add the jar to the classpath, either directly via the CLASSPATH environment variable or while initializing the JVM

    You can also use the NEOJDBC_WARMUP environment variable, which will ensure we reuse an existing jpype instance or create a new one ( with default parameters )

Getting started

from sqlalchemy import create_engine

# This happens automatically if you set the NEOJDBC_WARMUP environment variable

eng = create_engine("neo4j+jdbc://neo4j-neo4j:7687/neo4j?UID=neo4j&PWD=QUOTED_PASSWORD&LogLevel=6&StrictlyUseBoltScheme=false")

execute = engine.execute("select * from Node.YOUR_NODE limit 1")
rows = execute.fetchall()
for row in rows:
