Project Description

This is a port of Gephi’s ForceAtlas2 layout algorithm to Python 2 and Python 3 (with a wrapper for NetworkX).


The only strict dependency is Numpy. Cython is highly recommended, as it will speed it up by a factor of 10-100, depending on the graph. Both can be installed with:

pip install numpy pip install cython

To use the NetworkX wrapper function, you obviously need NetworkX.

Then to install this package, it is the typical:

python install

Example usage

Two core functions are defined:

  • forceatlas2.forceatlas2 takes an adjacency matrix and optionally initial positions and other optional arguments. It uses this to calculate a layout.
  • forceatlas2.forceatlas2_networkx_layout takes a NetworkX graph and returns a NetworkX-compatible layout.

To use within NetworkX:

import matplotlib.pyplot as plt import networkx import random import forceatlas2 G = networkx.karate_club_graph() pos = { i : (random.random(), random.random()) for i in G.nodes()} # Optionally specify positions as a dictionary l = forceatlas2.forceatlas2_networkx_layout(G, pos, niter=1000) # Optionally specify iteration count networkx.draw_networkx(G, l)

Note that my coding style is non-Pythonic, as I don’t use function docstrings. You will have to take a look at the function definition in to see a description of all of the potential arguments.
