Release of our latest version: Graphileon 2.2.0

On August 15th we released our first beta of Graphileon Personal Edition and after extensive testing we’re now ready to release our next version. Graphileon 2.2.0 solves a number of minor issues, contains several UX improvements and adds new features such as bookmarking of functions and dashboards, custom page styles, export of diagrams to Cypher and the inclusion of powerful 3rd party components ag-Grid and Chart.js for improved grid and chart performance. Graphileon 2.2.0 also offers the possibility to include a licensed version of yFiles for enhanced network visualisation.
In addition, Graphileon 2.2.0 supports openCypher, allowing it to connect to Neo4j and Memgraph databases.

Graphileon Server Edition was built to serve networked multi-user environments. On top of what the Personal Edition offers, this version allows for multiple users, unlimited connected graph stores and more elaborate Graphileon applications, depending on the version registered.

Pricing for the Server Edition starts at only 3,000 €/yr and uses a progressive licensing model based on the number of “Graphileons” -the sum of users, dashboards and function nodes- used.

Things you can do with Graphileon

Graphileon can communicate with other web-services by means of its IA_Request function.

This is illustrated by the “Topic extraction” demo which demonstrates the power of Graphileon in combination with the MeaningCloud topic extraction service. While you add content to your documents, MeaningCloud extracts the topics and Graphileon builds a graph database structure out of the meaning on the fly! In addition it uses the Neo4j algorithm plugin to calculate the similarity with other existing documents. You can read a full description of this powerful demo, with accompanying YouTube videos, on our blog.


Getting started

The possibilities of Graphileon are endless but if you wanted to get started quickly you best start watching our Getting Started videos on YouTube. They take you through the Graphileon user interface, visualisation, styling and building of applications on top of your graph stores.

Graphileon tips and tricks

Virtual nodes

“If it looks like a node, smells like a node and feels like a node then it is a node”

In other words; Anything that has the data structure of a node (or a relationship), will be displayed as such in our NetworkView or yFilesView.
It doesn’t even matter whether the underlying data comes from a graph store, a response from a web service, Elastic, or a combination of those.

This opens up great possibilities for the creation of virtual nodes and relations that exist in the visualisation but not in the underlying data store. Virtual nodes are a useful strategy for situations where you want to present aggregated information (e.g. a combination of nodes and/or relations) from different related nodes or when you want to do a scenario analysis in a multi-user environment and not want to write to the database.

The use of virtual nodes is described on our blog and demonstrated in our Analysis of scenarios video.

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.
