A new Graph REPL using Heroku on Neo4j has been announced over at GitHub.  For those of you who don't know, REPL stands for Read-Eval-Print Loop, and refers to a simple interactive top-level programming environment.  In this case, the environment displays a simple graph representation that includes titles for both nodes and relationships.  The link to the console displays code and a graph for characters from The Matrix, which is awesome. 

The Github page includes usage and readme documents; here are the features and endpoints:
