Graph.selfloop_edges(data=False, default=None)[source]

Return a list of selfloop edges.

A selfloop edge has the same node at both ends.

  • data (string or bool, optional (default=False)) – Return selfloop edges as two tuples (u,v) (data=False) or three-tuples (u,v,datadict) (data=True) or three-tuples (u,v,datavalue) (data=’attrname’)
  • default (value, optional (default=None)) – Value used for edges that dont have the requested attribute. Only relevant if data is not True or False.

edgelist – A list of all selfloop edges.

Return type:

list of edge tuples


>>> G = nx.Graph()   # or DiGraph, MultiGraph, MultiDiGraph, etc
>>> G.add_edge(1,1)
>>> G.add_edge(1,2)
>>> G.selfloop_edges()
[(1, 1)]
>>> G.selfloop_edges(data=True)
[(1, 1, {})]
