Access to certain labels or relationship types or properties can now be handled at the database level, resulting in developers not having to deal with complex security logic in their code, and also providing a more consistent and performant solution.

It’s been a year since I published the Graph Technology Landscape 2019 post on GraphAware’s blog. I consider this a success story because it got a lot of attention and publicity.

I was even invited to Rik van Bruggen Graphistania Podcast to talk about it, and the episode was referred to in the Top 5 Neo4j Podcasts of 2019 blog posts as well....

06 Feb 2020 by Luanne Misquitta · 7 min read Neo4j Cypher

Up until version 4.0, Neo4j has supported only one active database per server instance. As such, achieving multi tenancy meant that either a Neo4j instance had to be deployed per tenant, or all tenant graphs co-existed in the same database.

Scale up your D3 graph visualisation – WebGL & Canvas with PIXI.js

Scale up your D3 graph visualisation – WebGL & Canvas with PIXI.js

05 Sep 2019 by Jan Zak · 3 min read Graph Visualization Intermediate

Do you use D3 for data visualisation and either you are considering, or already using it also for graph visualisation? Keep in mind that D3 uses SVG for rendering. While it is the easiest to work with API for drawing 2D graphics on the Web, its downside is that the browser keeps the entire DOM tree of vector elements in memory, even for elements that are effectively invisible. You might hit a performance drop with complex graphics, specifically for graph visualisation when you try drawing graphs larger than ~1000 nodes, or even less with complex SVG effects.
