adjacency_graph(data, directed=False, multigraph=True, attrs={'id': 'id', 'key': 'key'})[source]

Returns graph from adjacency data format.

Parameters:data (dict) – Adjacency list formatted graph data
  • G (NetworkX graph) – A NetworkX graph object
  • directed (bool) – If True, and direction not specified in data, return a directed graph.
  • multigraph (bool) – If True, and multigraph not specified in data, return a multigraph.
  • attrs (dict) – A dictionary that contains two keys ‘id’ and ‘key’. The corresponding values provide the attribute names for storing NetworkX-internal graph data. The values should be unique. Default value: dict(id='id', key='key').


>>> from networkx.readwrite import json_graph
>>> G = nx.Graph([(1,2)])
>>> data = json_graph.adjacency_data(G)
>>> H = json_graph.adjacency_graph(data)


The default value of attrs will be changed in a future release of NetworkX.
