Store family trees in plain text and visualize them in your browser

Project description

pedigree takes a [toml][] file like that in examples/example.toml ([source][]) and outputs a few messy visualizations that do not favor patriliny over matriliny. See examples/ for example output.

Example:

For a quick example, generate the example .toml file

pedigree -f new_relations.toml

then generate output based on it

pedigree -f new_relations.toml generate

Outputs:

  • .html file: a [d3][] visualization that can be opened in a web browser
  • .svg file: a “Sugiyama style” tree that can be opened in a web browser
  • .dot file: the [dot][] file used to generate the .svg file

Installation:

pip3 install pedigree

pedigree –help will tell you your options.

You need to install graphviz form your package manager if you want to generate .svg output

Bugs:

Please create an [issue](https://github.com/jbaber/pedigree/issues) for any bugs you find.

If you’re a developer, the bugs are actually being kept in [git-bug](https://github.com/MichaelMure/git-bug), so feel free to work with them there.

Caveats:

  • Don’t put all your genealogical data in one text file that you manipulate via a python script written by some idiot on the internet. At least make copies of the one text file.
  • This can only recognize the relations x is the mother of y, x is the father of y, and x is the spouse of y. It has no concept of siblings or partial siblings.
