We created Apoc because we noticed that we always included the same set of initial components in our projects. Additionally, one of the most frequent questions we get on for example the user mailing list is 'how do you find a node by property value?' The answer is 'well, you use index-util, which you can download from the maven site.'
Now you don't have to. If you use Apoc, you already have index-util on your classpath as well as a component for remote access (remote-neo) and a command-line browser.
Feel free to check it out and please give us feedback as usual!
