Neocons is a feature rich idiomatic Clojure client for the Neo4J REST API.

2.0.0-beta3 is a development milestone that adds support to remaining Neo4J 2.0 features. It is 100% backwards compatible.

Changes between Neocons 2.0.0-beta2 and 2.0.0-beta3

Constraints Support (Neo4J 2.0 Only) is a new namespace that implements Neo4J 2.0 constraints.

(require '[ :as cts])

;; create a uniqueness constraint
(cts/create-unique "Person" :name)

;; get constraint info
(cts/get-unique "Person" :name)

;; drop a constraint
(cts/drop "Person" :name)

Labels Support (Neo4J 2.0 Only) is a new namespace that provides support for labels in Neo4J 2.0.

It is possible to add, replace, remove and retrieve labels to/from a node.

To add labels to a node, use

(require '[ :as nl])

(nl/add node ["neo4j" "clojure"])

To add replaces all labels on a node, use

(require '[ :as nl])

(nl/replace node ["graph" "database"])

Deleting a label from a node is possible with

(require '[ :as nl])

(nl/remove node "database") is the function that lists either all labels in the database (w/o arguments) or on a specific node (1-arity):

(require '[ :as nl])

(nl/get-all-labels node)
;= [all labels]
(nl/get-all-labels node)
;= [labels on node]
