Data.GraphViz.Commands

Contents

Description

This module defines functions to call the various Graphviz commands.

Whilst various output formats are supported (see GraphvizOutput for a complete list), it is not yet possible to choose a desired renderer and formatter. Being able to determine which renderers and formatters are applicable for a specific GraphvizOutput is not easy (there is no listing of available renderers or formatters on the Graphviz website), and for the most part the default ones do the job well.

Please note that for GraphvizOutput and GraphvizCanvas, you will see that they are instances of a GraphvizResult class; this is an internal class that should not be visible outside this module, but Haddock is being too helpful for its own good.

Synopsis

The different Graphviz tools available.

data GraphvizCommand Source

The available Graphviz commands. The following directions are based upon those in the Graphviz man page (available online at http://graphviz.org/pdf/dot.1.pdf, or if installed on your system man graphviz). Note that any command can be used on both directed and undirected graphs.

When used with the Layout attribute, it overrides any actual command called on the dot graph.

Constructors

Dot

For hierachical graphs (ideal for directed graphs).

Neato

For symmetric layouts of graphs (ideal for undirected graphs).

TwoPi

For radial layout of graphs.

Circo

For circular layout of graphs.

Fdp

Spring-model approach for undirected graphs.

Sfdp

As with Fdp, but ideal for large graphs.

Osage

Filter for drawing clustered graphs, requires Graphviz >= 2.28.0.

Patchwork

Draw clustered graphs as treemaps, requires Graphviz >= 2.28.0.

dirCommand :: GraphvizCommandSource

The default command for directed graphs.

undirCommand :: GraphvizCommandSource

The default command for undirected graphs.

commandFor :: DotRepr dg n => dg n -> GraphvizCommandSource

The appropriate (default) Graphviz command for the given graph.

The possible outputs that Graphviz supports.

The list of output types supported by Graphviz is dependent upon how it is built on your system. To determine which actual formats are available on your system, run dot -T?. Trying to use an output type that is not supported by your installation of Graphviz will result in an error.

The outputs defined here in GraphvizOutput and GraphvizCanvas are those from the default list of available outputs. For more information, see: http://graphviz.org/doc/info/output.html

data GraphvizOutput Source

The possible Graphviz output formats (that is, those that actually produce a file).

Constructors

Bmp

Windows Bitmap Format.

Canon

Pretty-printed Dot output with no layout performed.

DotOutput

Reproduces the input along with layout information.

XDot (Maybe Version)

As with DotOutput, but provides even more information on how the graph is drawn. The optional Version is the same as specifying the XDotVersion attribute.

Eps

Encapsulated PostScript.

Fig

FIG graphics language.

Gd

Internal GD library format.

Gd2

Compressed version of Gd.

Gif

Graphics Interchange Format.

Ico

Icon image file format.

Imap

Server-side imagemap.

Cmapx

Client-side imagemap.

ImapNP

As for Imap, except only rectangles are used as active areas.

CmapxNP

As for Cmapx, except only rectangles are used as active areas.

Jpeg

The JPEG image format.

Pdf

Portable Document Format.

Plain

Simple text format.

PlainExt

As for Plain, but provides port names on head and tail nodes when applicable.

Png

Portable Network Graphics format.

Ps

PostScript.

Ps2

PostScript for PDF.

Svg

Scalable Vector Graphics format.

SvgZ

Compressed SVG format.

Tiff

Tagged Image File Format.

Vml

Vector Markup Language; Svg is usually preferred.

VmlZ

Compressed VML format; SvgZ is usually preferred.

Vrml

Virtual Reality Modeling Language format; requires nodes to have a third dimension set via the Pos attribute (and with a Dim value of at least 3).

WBmp

Wireless BitMap format; monochrome format usually used for mobile computing devices.

WebP

Google's WebP format; requires Graphviz >= 2.29.0.

data GraphvizCanvas Source

Unlike GraphvizOutput, these items do not produce an output file; instead, they directly draw a canvas (i.e. a window) with the resulting image.

Constructors

Gtk 
Xlib 

Running Graphviz.

runGraphviz :: PrintDotRepr dg n => dg n -> GraphvizOutput -> FilePath -> IO FilePathSource

Run the recommended Graphviz command on this graph, saving the result to the file provided (note: file extensions are not checked).

runGraphvizCommand :: PrintDotRepr dg n => GraphvizCommand -> dg n -> GraphvizOutput -> FilePath -> IO FilePathSource

Run the chosen Graphviz command on this graph, saving the result to the file provided (note: file extensions are not checked).

addExtension :: (GraphvizOutput -> FilePath -> a) -> GraphvizOutput -> FilePath -> aSource

Append the default extension for the provided GraphvizOutput to the provided FilePath for the output file.

runGraphvizCanvas :: PrintDotRepr dg n => GraphvizCommand -> dg n -> GraphvizCanvas -> IO ()Source

Run the chosen Graphviz command on this graph and render it using the given canvas type.

runGraphvizCanvas' :: PrintDotRepr dg n => dg n -> GraphvizCanvas -> IO ()Source

Run the recommended Graphviz command on this graph and render it using the given canvas type.

graphvizWithHandleSource

Arguments

:: PrintDotRepr dg n 
=> GraphvizCommand

Which command to run

-> dg n

The DotRepr to use

-> GraphvizOutput

The GraphvizOutput type

-> (Handle -> IO a)

Extract the output

-> IO a

The error or the result.

Run the chosen Graphviz command on this graph, but send the result to the given handle rather than to a file.

Note that the Handle -> IO a function must fully consume the input from the Handle; e.g. use strict ByteStrings rather than lazy ones.

If the command was unsuccessful, then a GraphvizException is thrown.

Testing if Graphviz is installed

isGraphvizInstalled :: IO BoolSource

Is the Graphviz suite of tools installed? This is determined by whether dot is available in the PATH.

quitWithoutGraphviz :: String -> IO ()Source

If Graphviz does not seem to be available, print the provided error message and then exit fatally.
