rgexf-package: Build, Import and Export GEXF Graph Files

Description Details Note References Examples

Description

Create, read and write GEXF (Graph Exchange XML Format) graph files (used in Gephi and others).

Details

Using the XML package, it allows the user to easily build/read graph files including attributes, GEXF viz attributes (such as color, size, and position), network dynamics (for both edges and nodes) and edge weighting.

Users can build/handle graphs element-by-element or massively through data-frames, visualize the graph on a web browser through "gexf-js" (a javascript library) and interact with the igraph package.

Finally, the functions igraph.to.gexf and gexf.to.igraph convert objects from igraph to gexf and viceversa keeping attributes and colors.

Please visit the project home for more information: https://github.com/gvegayon/rgexf.

Note

See the GEXF primer for details on the GEXF graph format: https://gephi.org/gexf/1.2draft/gexf-12draft-primer.pdf
