networkx.drawing.nx_pydot.graphviz_layout

graphviz_layout(G, prog='neato', root=None)[source]

Create node positions using Pydot and Graphviz.

Returns a dictionary of positions keyed by node.

Parameters
GNetworkX Graph

The graph for which the layout is computed.

progstring (default: ‘neato’)

The name of the GraphViz program to use for layout. Options depend on GraphViz version but may include: ‘dot’, ‘twopi’, ‘fdp’, ‘sfdp’, ‘circo’

rootNode from G or None (default: None)

The node of G from which to start some layout algorithms.

Returns
Dictionary of (x, y) positions keyed by node.

Notes

This is a wrapper for pydot_layout.

Examples

>>> G = nx.complete_graph(4)
>>> pos = nx.nx_pydot.graphviz_layout(G)
>>> pos = nx.nx_pydot.graphviz_layout(G, prog="dot")
