- dijkstra_path_length(G, source, target, weight='weight')¶
Returns the shortest path length from source to target in a weighted graph.
G : NetworkX graph
source : node label
starting node for path
target : node label
ending node for path
weight: string, optional (default=’weight’)
Edge data key corresponding to the edge weight
length : number
Shortest path length.
If no path exists between source and target.
Edge weight attributes must be numerical. Distances are calculated as sums of weighted edges traversed.
>>> G=nx.path_graph(5) >>> print(nx.dijkstra_path_length(G,0,4)) 4
