Import and Attribute Errors in py2neo conda environment

Hello all,

I'm using py2neo in a conda environment. I import like this:

from py2neo import Graph, Node, Relationship

I have a neo4j instance in a graph object:

graph = Graph("bolt://localhost:7687",auth=("neo4j","password"))

The output of py2neo.__file__ is as expected I think.


Yet I get lots of errors when I try to run various attributes and other imports. For example, graph.nodes raises AttributeError: 'Graph' object has no attribute 'nodes'."Some Cypher query") works but if I try to apply anything like"MATCH (n) RETURN AS name").to_data_frame() or to_table() I get AttributeError: 'Cursor' object has no attribute 'to_data_frame'. However, I can run"MATCH (n) RETURN AS name").data() without issue.

I can also not import Database, NodeMatcher, and others.

ImportError                               Traceback (most recent call last)
<ipython-input-144-a35e0d35c939> in <module>
     12 import plotly.plotly as py
     13 import plotly.graph_objs as go
---> 14 from py2neo import Graph, Node, Relationship, NodeMatcher
     15 from folium.plugins import MarkerCluster, HeatMap, Fullscreen

ImportError: cannot import name 'NodeMatcher'

Could it be related to Anaconda? Any suggestions for steps I can take to identify the issue? I've already searched for answers on SO and elsewhere without a positive result.

I don't know about conda specifically, but it sounds like you either have an old version or an import clash. Which version of py2neo did you install?

I've got:

import py2neo


I tried a few different versions in different environments. For some reason, when I install version 4.0.0 in an environment with the python driver 1.6.2 installed, it downgrades it to 1.1.0. Is that normal?

My full environment is:

Yes, that is expected. Py2neo 4.0 works with the 1.1 driver, py2neo 4.1 works with the 1.6 driver and py2neo 4.2 works with the 1.7 driver (connector). So you'll need to upgrade your py2neo if you want a later version of the driver also installed.
