Neo4j DEVTOOLS: Better in Neo4j WorkspaceGregory King summarizes recent updates to the Neo4j Workspace. There’s Saved Cypher, previously known as Favorites in the Browser, which offers export and import in CSV format. Query now has a single :param command (though :params is aliased to :param for convenience) and sports improved graph visualisation. And now, you can stop an import job once it’s started.
DATASET: Creating a Web of Synthetic DataJason Koo introduces the Mock Data Generator, a collection of tools to generate synthetic graph data. You’ll use ChatGPT to convert text into a graph, modify it visually with arrows.app, then automatically create the nodes and relationships.
