When choosing a new technology, priority one is documentation and drivers.

I'm looking at graph databases at the moment, trying to work out which one to use.

The thing I'm interested in first and foremost is quality of drivers and documentation.  The better the drivers and documentation, the less painful development is likely to be.  Unfortunately, drivers and documentation for Python tend to be an incomplete half-assed hack job.

Most database developers put all their effort into writing the core database code.  They should put most effort into drivers and documentation.
