GraphML charts embedding extension for Sphinx

Project description

A GraphML charts embedding extension for Sphinx.

This extensions simply uses the GraphMLViewer tool provided by yWorks. Admittedly, it is based on Flash and will no longer be supported from the end of 2020, but this is still the easiest and best option to display a .graphml chart created with yEd in a browser. Hopefully by the end of 2020 there will be adequate svg-based solutions.


As simple as it can be with pip:

pip install sphinx-graphml


Add the extension name to your

extensions = [

In your documentation:

.. graphml:: rel/path/to/my_graph.graphml
   :height: 500px

(the default height is 300px)


If you load your documentation from a file (and not from a web server) using a flash player version higher than 23, you won’t see the charts. See this article and this other one for workarounds.
