This plugin adds support for Neo4j graph database. You can open Neo4j 2.1.3 database directory and manipulate with graph as any other Gephi graph. You can also export any graph into Neo4j database, you can filter import or export and you can use debugging as well as lazy loading support.


  • Import all data from Neo4j database
  • Traversal and filtered import

Supports the 2.1.3 version of Neo4j. If you have trouble with other versions of Neo4j please let us know.
