Utilities

#.circular

Arranges the node in a circle (or an sphere/hypersphere in higher dimensions).

Example

import {circular} from 'graphology-layout';
// Alternatively, to load only the relevant code:
import circular from 'graphology-layout/circular';

const positions = circular(graph);

// With options:
const positions = circular(graph, {scale: 100});

// To directly assign the positions to the nodes:
circular.assign(graph);

// To pass custom dimensions
const positions = random(graph, {dimensions: ['x1', 'x2']});

Arguments

  • graph Graph: target graph.
  • options ?object: options:
    • dimensions ?array [‘x’, ‘y’]: dimensions of the layout. Cannot work with dimensions != 2.
    • center ?number 0.5: center of the layout.
    • scale ?number 1: scale of the layout.

#.random

Random layout positioning every node by choosing each coordinates uniformly at random on the interval [0, 1).

Example

import {random} from 'graphology-layout';
// Alternatively, to load only the relevant code:
import random from 'graphology-layout/random';

const positions = random(graph);

// With options:
const positions = random(graph, {rng: customRngFunction});

// To directly assign the positions to the nodes:
random.assign(graph);

// To pass custom dimensions
const positions = random(graph, {dimensions: ['x', 'y', 'z']});

Arguments

  • graph Graph: target graph.
  • options ?object: options:
    • dimensions ?array [‘x’, ‘y’]: dimensions of the layout.
    • center ?number 0.5: center of the layout.
    • rng ?function Math.random: custom RNG function to use.
    • scale ?number 1: scale of the layout.

#.circlePack

Arranges the nodes as a bubble chart, according to specified attributes.

Example

import {circlepack} from 'graphology-layout';
// Alternatively, to load only the relevant code:
import circlepack from 'graphology-layout/circlepack';

const positions = circlepack(graph);

// With options
const positions = circlepack(graph, {
  hierarchyAttributes: ['degree', 'community'],
  rng: customRngFunction
});

// To directly assign the positions to the nodes:
circlepack.assign(graph);

Arguments

  • graph Graph: target graph.
  • options ?object: options:
    • attributes ?object: attributes to map:
      • x ?string x: name of the x position.
      • y ?string y: name of the y position.
    • center ?number 0: center of the layout.
    • hierarchyAttributes ?list []: attributes used to group nodes.
    • rng ?function Math.random: custom RNG function to use.
    • scale ?number 1: scale of the layout.

#.rotation

Rotates the node coordinates of the given graph by the given angle in radians (or in degrees using an option).

Note that this function rotates your graph based on its center. If you want to use zero as the center for your rotation, use the centeredOnZero option. This option can also be used as an optimization strategy if you know your graph is already centered on zero to avoid needing to compute the graph’s extent.

Example

import {rotation} from 'graphology-layout';
// Alternatively, to load only the relevant code:
import rotation from 'graphology-layout/rotation';

const positions = rotation(graph, Math.PI / 2);

// With options:
const positions = rotation(graph, Math.PI / 2, {centeredOnZero: true});

// To directly assign the positions to the nodes:
rotation.assign(graph, Math.PI / 2);

Arguments

  • graph Graph: target graph.
  • angle number: rotation angle in radians (or degrees using an option below).
  • options ?object: options:
    • dimensions ?array [‘x’, ‘y’]: dimensions to use for the rotation. Cannot work with dimensions != 2.
    • degrees ?boolean false: whether the given angle is in degrees.
    • centeredOnZero ?boolean false: whether to rotate the graph around 0, rather than the graph’s center.
