What is the Neo4j GraphGist Project?

Goals
This article introduces the GraphGist project and guides the reader through the process of creating and submitting a simple GraphGist.
Prerequisites
You should have a good understanding of the Neo4j’s property graph data model. It is also helpful to know a bit about the Cypher query language.
Beginner

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. They are very helpful to share knowledge among the Neo4j community and help developers and others within your own organization by showing real-life solutions.

These documents are written in a simple, textual markup language (AsciiDoc) and are rendered in your browser as rich and interactive web pages that you can quickly evolve by 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:
