add_pathR Documentation

Add a path of nodes to the graph

Description

With a graph object of class dgr_graph, add a node path to the graph.

Usage

add_path(
  graph,
  n,
  type = NULL,
  label = TRUE,
  rel = NULL,
  node_aes = NULL,
  edge_aes = NULL,
  node_data = NULL,
  edge_data = NULL
)

Arguments

graph

A graph object of class dgr_graph.

n

The number of nodes comprising the path.

type

An optional string that describes the entity type for the nodes to be added.

label

Either a vector object of length n that provides optional labels for the new nodes, or, a logical value where setting to TRUE ascribes node IDs to the label and FALSE yields a blank label.

rel

An optional string for providing a relationship label to all new edges created in the node path.

node_aes

An optional list of named vectors comprising node aesthetic attributes. The helper function node_aes() is strongly recommended for use here as it contains arguments for each of the accepted node aesthetic attributes (e.g., shape, style, color, fillcolor).

edge_aes

An optional list of named vectors comprising edge aesthetic attributes. The helper function edge_aes() is strongly recommended for use here as it contains arguments for each of the accepted edge aesthetic attributes (e.g., shape, style, penwidth, color).

node_data

An optional list of named vectors comprising node data attributes. The helper function node_data() is strongly recommended for use here as it helps bind data specifically to the created nodes.

edge_data

An optional list of named vectors comprising edge data attributes. The helper function edge_data() is strongly recommended for use here as it helps bind data specifically to the created edges.

Value

A graph object of class dgr_graph.

Examples

# Create a new graph and add
# 2 paths of varying lengths
graph <-
  create_graph() %>%
  add_path(
    n = 4,
    type = "path") %>%
  add_path(
    n = 5,
    type = "path")

# Get node information
# from this graph
graph %>% get_node_info()

# Node and edge aesthetic and data
# attributes can be specified in
# the `node_aes`, `edge_aes`,
# `node_data`, and `edge_data`
# arguments
