Recently I was asked to help with a Proof-of-concept for graph databases. The database in question was neo4j and it uses cypher as the query language. Some say it is like SQL, some say it’s not even close. My part in the POC was to create a REST api to hide the complexity of getting information out of the graph.
Neo4j offers a REST api. This eliminates the need for a driver and makes the database easier to integrate. The REST api expects a payload with cypher statements to execute and returns the result. Mark Tranter already created a github project and published a nuget. I’m going to use that.
The cyphernet implementation is from 2014 and stil works. Some people posted pull requests, like for adding credentials (now authentication must be turned off) I was looking for a way to execute Regular Expression where statements.
I created a CypherNet fork repository on github and added the Regular Expression implementation used for the POC. My first fork, I’m still learning.
