CHROMA

WHAT WAS OUR PROBLEM ?

INFINITE CATEGORY TREE

PHOTOS ATTACHED TO CATEGORIES

GIVE ME THE LATEST PHOTO IN A CATEGORY TREE

MATCH (category:Category{id:'5294ecd1389a5e44303bd774'})
MATCH (category)-[:CHILD_OF*0..50]->(subcats: Category)<-[:PHOTO_OF]-(photo: Photo)
with photo
order by photo.created_at
return last(collect(photo.id)) as last_photo_id

WE NEED THE LATEST PHOTO IN A CATEGORY TREE BELONG TO PROVIDED USER

COMPLEX AGGREGATION

MATCH (cat_user:User {id:"51e52cfc389a5e35fa403436"}),
      (category:Category)
WHERE category.parent_id='0'
MATCH (category)-[:CHILD_OF*0..50]->(subcats)
WITH distinct subcats as dsubcats, category, cat_user
MATCH (dsubcats)<-[:PHOTO_OF]-(photo:Photo)-[:OWNER]->(cat_user)
with photo, category, cat_user
order by photo.created_at
return distinct category.id, last(collect(photo.id)) as last_photo_id, count(distinct photo) as photo_count, category.name

GIVE ME THE PHOTOS CONNECTED TO PLACES NEAR LAT 22.7 LON 79.10

START place=node:geom('withinDistance:[22.7, 79.10, 100.0]')
        where place.type='Place'
        MATCH (place)-[:CHILD_OF*0..50]->(subplaces:Place)
        with distinct subplaces, place
        MATCH (subplaces)<-[:TAKEN_AT]-(photo:Photo)
        return place.name, photo

GIVE ME THE COUNT OF PHOTOS IN NORTH AMERICA FOR WILD ANIMALS


MATCH (place: Place{id: '5571b6a691201b05075468f8'})
MATCH (category: Category{id: '529500b0389a5e442fd8fcad'})
MATCH (place)-[:CHILD_OF*0..10]->(subplaces)<-[:TAKEN_AT]-(photo:Photo)
MATCH (category)-[:CHILD_OF*0..10]->(subcategories: Category)<-[:PHOTO_OF]-(photo: Photo)
return count(distinct photo)
