Get started with Graphileon with these videos

Getting started with Graphileon. A series of videos about installation, configuration and building Graphileon applications.

You’ve downloaded your free copy of Graphileon Personal Edition from our website.  Great!  Now let’s get started! In this post, you find the videos that we have recorded to help you.

Installation and configuration

The first video explains how to install and configure Graphileon Personal Edition with one graph store in Neo4j Desktop and a second one in the cloud ( GrapheneDB ).

User interface basics

Our second video walks you through the user interface. We explain the UI elements and tools that are available in Graphileon. You learn how to use Graphileon to explore and manage your data, and how you can style your nodes and relations for a better appearance of your graphs.

Your application is a graph

The third video is about the basics of building applications. By using


patterns, you connect queries to tables, queries to network visualisations. In short, you create applications that are really graphy.

Respond to user input

The fourth video illustrates how to use user input, like clicks on rows (in a GridView) , or a node (in a NetworkView)  to feed parameters into the next Function. For example, this pattern

(:GridView)-[:TRIGGER {type:'rowClick',$params.personId}]

->(:Query {cypher:'MATCH (p:Person {id:$personId}) ... '})

passes the personId from a row in a GridView to the Query

If, after watching these videos, you still have questions, you may find the answers in our on-line documentation. For other questions, please send a message to, so we can send you an invite to our Slack channel.

Analysis of scenarios demo, installation script and explanation

A while ago, Tom posted a video called Analysis of scenarios in Graphileon. In this video he demonstrates a Graphileon application that takes a network and uses a graph algorithm to find a shortest path between two nodes. While this in itself is not very spectacular -it’s one of the reasons graph databases are used in … Continued

Query list demo application

So you have long list of custom Cypher queries that you want to run regularly against your graph data store? Some of them return tabulated output and others return networks? You don’t want to clutter your dashboard with too many buttons and want to economize the use of Function nodes? Here is a simple Graphileon solution that … Continued

Topic Extraction with MeaningCloud demo for your implementation

Following our article on topic extraction with MeaningCloud and Graphileon we had some users asking for instructions on how to build that application themselves. In this article we’ll describe the 2nd demo from that blog post, a Graphileon application which allows you add ‘Documents’ -pieces of text on a particular topic- which are then processed … Continued

Get started with the Personal Edition

The easiest way to get to know Graphileon is by using the Personal Edition. Build graphy applications and browse your graph stores in a way you never did before.
