Neo4j for .NET Developers

dotnet

The .NET platform allows many developers to create fascinating applications utilizing graph concepts.

Powerful drivers like Neo4jClient from Tatham Oddie showed early on how easy it is to connect to Neo4j from .NET

Members of the .NET community have invested a lot of time and love to develop all these drivers, so if you use them please provide feedback to the authors.

The Example Project

It is a small one page webapp for our movies database. The front-end page is the same for all drivers, it consists of a movie search, detail info and a graph visualization of actors and movies. Each backend implementation shows you how to connect to Neo4j from the different languages and drivers.

You can learn more about our small, consistent example project across many different language drivers here. You find the implementations for all drivers as individual GitHub repositories, that you can clone and deploy directly.

Neo4jClient

A .NET client for Neo4j, which makes it easy to write Cypher queries in C# with IntelliSense. It also supports basic CRUD and legacy indexing.

Other Drivers

Cypher.NET

A .NET API for the Neo4j HTTP Transactional Endpoint (v2.0.0) exposes a strongly-typed Graph Query API based on the Neo4j Cypher query language.
