Scenario

In this scenario, we read lines from a text file into the graph to create a cloud of disconnected nodes that can be operated on later or analyzed individually.

This recipe demonstrates the most basic of ingest streams possible in Quine.

Sample Data

This recipe accepts any text file as input.

How it Works

The recipe reads lines from the source data file using an ingest stream to manifest a graph in Quine.

  - type: FileIngest
    path: $in_file
    format:
      type: CypherLine
      query: |-
        MATCH (n)
        WHERE id(n) = idFrom($that)
        SET n.line = $that
POST /api/v1/ingest/INGEST-1
{
  "type": "FileIngest",
  "path": "$in_file",
  "format": {
    "type": "CypherLine",
    "query": "MATCH (n)\nWHERE id(n) = idFrom($that)\nSET n.line = $that"
  }
}
