Interactively visualize networks with Ulf Aslak's d3-tool from Python.

Project description




This package provides an interface between networkx Graph objects and Ulf Aslak’s interactive web app for simple and better network visualizations.


pip install netwulf

Beware: netwulf only works with Python 3!



Create a network and look at it

import networkx as nx
from netwulf import visualize

G = nx.barabasi_albert_graph(100,m=1)

It’s possible to change the default settings which are

default_config = {
  'Apply heat (wiggle)': False,
  'Charge strength': -10,
  'Center gravity': 0.1,
  'Link distance': 10,
  'Link width': 2,
  'Link alpha': 0.5,
  'Node size': 10,
  'Node stroke size': 0.5,
  'Node size exponent': 0.5,
  'Link strength exponent': 0.1,
  'Link width exponent': 0.5,
  'Collision': False,
  'Node fill': '#16a085',
  'Node stroke': '#000000',
  'Link stroke': '#7c7c7c',
  'Label stroke': '#000000',
  'Show labels': False,
  'Zoom': 1.5,
  'Min. link weight %': 0,
  'Max. link weight %': 100

It’s done like so:

import networkx as nx
from netwulf import visualize

G = nx.barabasi_albert_graph(5000,m=1)
        'Node size': 11,
        'Charge strength' : -0.8,
        'Link distance' : 10,
        'Link width' : 1,
        'Collision' : True,
