Add edges and attributes to graph from a table

Description

Add edges and their attributes to an existing graph object from data in a CSV file or a data frame.

Usage

add_edges_from_table(
  graph,
  table,
  from_col,
  to_col,
  from_to_map,
  rel_col = NULL,
  set_rel = NULL,
  drop_cols = NULL
)

Arguments

graph

A graph object of class dgr_graph.

table

Either a path to a CSV file, or, a data frame object.

from_col

The name of the table column from which edges originate.

to_col

The name of the table column to which edges terminate.

from_to_map

A single character value for the mapping of the from and to columns in the external table (supplied as from_col and to_col, respectively) to a column in the graph's internal node data frame (ndf).

rel_col

An option to apply a column of data in the table as rel attribute values.

set_rel

an optional string to apply a rel attribute to all edges created from the table records.

drop_cols

An optional column selection statement for dropping columns from the external table before inclusion as attributes in the graph's internal edge data frame. Several columns can be dropped by name using the syntax col_1 & col_2 & .... Columns can also be dropped using a numeric column range with : (e.g., 5:8), or, by using the : between column names to specify the range (e.g., col_5_name:col_8_name).

Value

A graph object of class dgr_graph.

Examples

# Create an empty graph and then
# add nodes to it from the
# `currencies` dataset available
# in the package
graph <-
  create_graph() %>%
  add_nodes_from_table(
    table = currencies)

# Now we want to add edges to the
# graph using an included dataset,
# `usd_exchange_rates`, which has
# exchange rates between USD and
# many other currencies; the key
# here is that the data in the
# `from` and `to` columns in the
# external table maps to graph
# node data available in the
# `iso_4217_code` column of the
# graph's internal node data frame
graph_1 <-
  graph %>%
    add_edges_from_table(
      table = usd_exchange_rates,
      from_col = from_currency,
      to_col = to_currency,
      from_to_map = iso_4217_code)

# View part of the graph's
# internal edge data frame
graph_1 %>%
  get_edge_df() %>%
  head()

# If you would like to assign
# any of the table's columns as the
# `rel` attribute, this can done
# with the `rel_col` argument; to
# set a static `rel` attribute for
# all edges created, use `set_rel`
graph_2 <-
  graph %>%
    add_edges_from_table(
      table = usd_exchange_rates,
      from_col = from_currency,
      to_col = to_currency,
      from_to_map = iso_4217_code,
      set_rel = "from_usd")

# View part of the graph's internal
# edge data frame (edf)
graph_2 %>%
  get_edge_df() %>%
  head()
