Neo4j Developer Resources


This is the repository with the source content for the developer resources section.

The content is written as textual format in AsciiDoc rendered with asciidoctor using erb-templates to HTML and pushed to the gh-pages branch for preview and to the publish branch for publishing to WordPress.

Install asciidoctor ( ruby gems with rbenv exec bundle install in the main directory. You also need ruby 2.5.0 installed on your system, e.g. via rbenv install 2.5.0.

You can render a single document to its index.html by calling `

(e.g. rbenv exec ruby ./render.rb in-production/guide-cloud-deployment/guide-cloud-deployment.adoc) or render all pages at once with just rbenv exec ruby ./render.rb all

You can open the generated index.html file locally to check the rendering/preview, or start the http script in the main directory (./http, for example), and then open: http://localhost:8000/developer/

Please edit and preview on the gh-pages branch, only if you are satisfied or someone has reviewed your changes merge them into the publish branch.

After commiting changes to head, you can push them to the publish branch: git push origin HEAD:publish. This will cause Circle CI to push the changes to the web server.


Most of the documents in this developer resources section are organized as a guide.

Those guides come with a consistent structure and similar use of language and assets.

Each of the guides lives in its own directory and is rendered into an index.html file for publication.

You can run the rendering process by calling render.rb on the command line.

A guide has this general structure:

  1. goal for this guide

  2. prerequisite with links to relevant sections

  3. recommended experience level (Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced)

  4. Multiple sections and subsections outlining the content, using a welcoming and helpful, not overly complex or eloquent language with examples in code, pictures, or videos

  5. each top level (===) section can be followed by a sidebar section which will be rendered on the right side with links to follow up information (internal links, calls to action, external links)

Please see the example guide template file for a blueprint of the document structure needed. And as rendered document.

Internal and External Content

Example Applications per Language, Stack and Driver

To explain how to use Neo4j with different programming languages, we provide an intro section per language, located in language-guides/<language>/<language>.adoc.

To show how the different drivers for that language would be used/integrated we also provide small example projects/setups in the language-guides/<language>/<driver> directories.

The example application is a simple, single-page movies app based on the Neo4j-Movies dataset that comes with Neo4j (:play movie graph in the Neo4j-Browser).

See an example running here on Heroku.

The HTML page uses jQuery requests to query 3 HTTP-Endpoints in the backend for /search, /movie and /graph

  • /search lists the movies found by title

  • /movie returns details for a single movie

  • /graph renders the full graph as a basic d3-visualization

This is our current list of projects on GitHub.
