Debian UDD into Graph Database

The scripts in this repository pull (some) data from the Ultimate Debian Database and convert them to a graph database, in particular Neo4j.

A detailed description of the process is available either on my blog (Part 1, Part 2, Part 3), or

The scripts here are:

  • queries the UDD and downloads the two tables for packages and sources. Needs DBI::PG Perl module. This scripts needs quite some time, as the server is not fast. Please be patient.
  • generate-graph is a Perl script that reads the two csv files generated from and generates csv files ready to be imported into Neo4j
  • ensures that duplicate lines are removed from the csvs
  • build-db assembles the proper command line for neo4j-import
  • build-all glues everything together

After the scripts has run, the files generated are in debian-neo4j and can be used as Neo4j database files.

Comments and improvements are always welcome.
