The Neo4j interface

Neo4j comes with a browser-based web interface with the ability to manage your database, run queries in Cypher or REST, as well as visualization support for graphs. You can view the status of your database with a node and the relationship count and disk usage stats under dashboard. The data browser helps you to run queries and visualize the results in the form of a graph. You can use the console option to run queries on the database.
