Graph Modeling Language (GML) standalone parser for Python 3.

Project description

PyGMLParser is a Graph Modeling Language (GML) standalone parser for Python 3.

It is a fork of: icasdri/

Get it from PyPi by doing:

pip3 install PyGMLParser

Uses Travis CI for continuous integration.

The class documentation is here

The specific updates are:

  • Updated to Python 3
  • Use f-strings
  • Separate files for each class
  • Use packages instead of single file
  • Updated GML format from Tulip .gml files to include the following keywords keyword used by the Python Tulip gml exporter ('GML Export')
    • graphics
    • Line
    • point
  • Use dataclasses for graphics and points
  • Use type hinting and custom typing for readability and maintainability
  • Use Python logging for debugging
  • Introduced a set of small unit tests

The fast and the dirty

# Retrieve the graph nodes

# Retrieve the graph edges
edges: Graph.Edges = graph.graphEdges  # list of Edge objects

# Directly access the node or edge attributes
node: Node = graph.graphNodes[0]
edge: Edge = graph.graphEdges[0]      # the id of this node
edge.source  # the source id of this edge

node.is_anon  # whether or not this node actually appeared as a node block
              # in the input GML (or if it was inferred, via edge source/targets)
              # _True_ if inferred, False if actually appeared

node.forward_edges   # List of Edge instances whose source is this node
node.backward_edges  # List of Edge instances whose target is this node

# Special attributes on Edges
edge.source_node  # Node object corresponding to edge.source (which is an id)
edge.target_node  # Node object corresponding to (which is an id)

# Get the Tulip extensions
edgeGraphics: EdgeGraphics =
nodeGraphics: NodeGraphics =

# Get the edge line drawing description
line:  Tuple[Point] = edgeGraphics.line
