Github Public Events translated to Neo4j Cypher Statements

Github Events To Cypher

This library leverages the GithubEvent library and convert github event objects to Neo4j Cypher Queries.


  • PHP 5.4+


Add this library to your project dependencies :

composer require ikwattro/github2cypher


The usage of the library is straightforward, instantiate the Github2CypherConverter class and pass your GithubEvent objects to the convert method :

use Ikwattro\Github2Cypher\Github2CypherConverter;

$converter = new Github2CypherConverter();

// Assuming you have a collection of GithubEvent objects

foreach ($events as $event) {
    $statements = $converter->convert($event);
    // Returns a collection of statements of the form ['query' => 'MATCH xxx...', 'params' => ['p1' => 'v1', 'p2' => 'v2', ..]

You can then use NeoClient to import the queries into Neo4j.

Indexes and Constraints

If you plan to import the queries into Neo4j (which is the goal), you can create the needed indexes and unique constraints easily.

These two methods returns you an array of indexes or constraints to create on labels/properties :

  • getInitialSchemaIndexes();
  • getInitialSchemaConstraints();
