Ruby: All content tagged as Ruby in NoSQL databases and polyglot persistence
This article demonstrated how to install Neo4j and the basic idea of how to integrate it with a Ruby/Rails application using the different solutions available. Even though the examples given here barely scratched the surface of Neo4j, it should hopefully give you enough knowledge and curiosity to start integrating it on your own projects.

Recently Max de Marzi has published sort of a getting started with Neo4j on Heroku guide. Here is how Max described it:
It takes a lot less effort to build a website these days than it used to. All it takes is a clever dwarf standing on the shoulders of the right giants. In a series of blog posts, I walk you through creating a movie recommendation website using Neo4j, Heroku, themoviedb.org, Processing.js, GroupLens, Marko Rodriguez and Michael Aufreiter. Free database, free hosting, free movie posters, free visualization, free dataset, free recommendation algorithm, just need to add a little code to bring them all together and BYOP (bring your own popcorn).
This will not get you a Netflix or Amazon like recommendation engine, but using a similar approach could definitely tell if Muhammad Ali is truly the greatest.
