This article introduces the GraphGist project and guides the reader through the process of creating a simple GraphGist.
You should have a good understanding of the Neo4j’s property graph data model, and its query language, Cypher.
Neo4j Graph Gists are an easy way to create and share your documents containing not just prose, structure and pictures but most importantly example graph models and use-cases expressed in Neo4j’s query language, Cypher.
These documents are written in a simple, textual markup language (AsciiDoc) and rendered in your browser as rich and interactive web pages that you can quickly evolve from describing simple how-tos or questions to providing an extensive use-case specification.
To see the expressive power of this approach, here are some winners of our past community competitions:
