If you are a Perl developer, this guide provides an overview of options for connecting to Neo4j. While this guide is not comprehensive it will introduce the different drivers and link to the relevant resources.
You should be familiar with graph database concepts and the property graph model. You should have installed Neo4j and made yourself familiar with our Cypher Query language.
Neo4j for Perl Developers
Members of the Perl community have invested a lot of time and love to develop all these drivers, so please if you use them, provide feedback to the authors.
The Example Project
The Neo4j example project is a small, one page webapp for the movies database built into the Neo4j tutorial. The front-end page is the same for all drivers: movie search, movie details, and a graph visualization of actors and movies. Each backend implementation shows you how to connect to Neo4j from each of the different languages and drivers.
Neo4j Community Drivers
|The drivers below have been thankfully contributed by the Neo4j community. Many of these are fully featured and well maintained. But we don’t take any responsibility for their fitness for use with the most recent versions of Neo4j.|
The Perl driver from Mark Jensen is always up to date with the latest Neo4j API developments, and it’s fun to use too. It works with the Neo4j’s REST API by using Perl5 objects in a consistent, idiomatic Perl-style.
