Viewing Contentful Data in Neo4j

This article introduces Contentful (a cloud-hosted, headless, Content Management System (CMS)) and the graph database Neo4j. I have written a utility that allows data stored in Contentful to be imported into a Neo4j graph database. I’ll leave detailed explanations of what this can do until after I have explained the two systems. There are probably very few people who are familiar with both of these products, so I will start with an introduction to each.

Creating classes from your content model

I've previously shown the way to use the Contentful.CodeFirst package to let your c# classes act as the basis of your content model in Contentful in another article. But what happens if your content model already exists and you want to create corresponding, strongly-typed C# models? That's a lot of boilerplate code to write—today I'm happy to release a new tool that helps you do just that.
