One of the great things about Neo4j is how easy it is to extend it.
Very good slidedeck from Max de Marzi introducing Neo4j’s Cypher query language. While you’ll have to go through the 50 slides yourself to get the details , I’ve extracted a couple of interesting bits: Cypher was created because Neo4j Java API was too verbose and Gremlin is too prescriptive SPARQL was designed for a different data model and doesn’t work very well with a graph database Cypher design decisions: declarative ASCII-art patterns ( nb : when first sawing Cypher I haven’t thought of this, but it is cool) pattern-matching external DSL closures SQL familiarity ( nb : as much as it’s possible with a radically different data model and processing model)
