This Week in Neo4j – New Release for Data Importer, Neo4j Browser, GraphQL, Bloom, and Much More

This week, we are announcing Neo4j Data Importer in beta, a powerful no-code UI for importing flat file data. It doesn’t replace your ETL tools or handle production loads, but it does quickly load your 2-dimensional data files into a graph.

Your opinion matters! In response to Neo4j Browser feedback, this new release adds trackpad zoom gestures for zooming in and out of the graph visualization. The release also boasts a fit-to-screen feature that enhances graph visualization, smoother graph display, and more. Gregory King gives you the gist of both the Neo4j Browser and Data Importer releases.
