is a neo4j version manager for nodejs. it will download and extract whichever version of neo4j you ask for.
npm install neo4j-vm
var nvm = ;;
function neo4jvm(version, edition, noclean, callback)
- version - the version of neo4j - for example '1.9.M01'
- edition - the edition of neo4j - for example 'community'
- noclean (optional, default=true) - in the event that this version has already be downloaded, if this is set to true, callback is immediately called with the path of that install
- callback - function(err, absolutePathToNeo4jInstall)
Neo4j is about 50mb. The first time you download a version, it takes a little while (dependant on your connection and location, of course).
neo4jvm uses curl and some native binaries like rm to function. Consequently, it will not work on windows.
