View flow data as Sankey diagrams.

Project Description

floWeaver takes a database of flow data and transforms it into a Sankey diagram. It implements the approach described in the paper Hybrid Sankey diagrams: Visual analysis of multidimensional data for understanding resource use.

Try it!

Try floWeaver with no installation: Quickstart tutorial.


floWeaver is a Python package, but you can use it as a data analysis tool even without too much familiarity with Python. The best way to get started is to use it in Jupyter notebooks; you can try it out right now in your browser without installing anything using MyBinder.

To install locally see the installation page for full details. In brief, floWeaver depends on pandas and numpy and it’s easiest to install those using Anaconda or Miniconda. Then install floweaver using pip:

pip install floweaver

You likely also want the ipysankeywidget package to show Sankey diagrams in the Jupyter notebook. Install this using pip and enable:

pip install ipysankeywidget
jupyter nbextension enable --py --sys-prefix ipysankeywidget
