Create Diagram From Python

+1 vote

It is possible to create a diagram from Python I have been analyzing the code of a .graphml to write a file from Python with this structure, however all my attempts have not been so successful. You will have something with this (Manual or examples).?

It should definitely be possible to create a .graphml file using some Python code, however, there is no such example / manual that describes this, I'm afraid.

For people who come to this Post, I have found the solution and it was possible to create drawings from Python using a library called PYYED.


Python Console

from pyyed import *

g = pyyed.Graph()

g.add_node('foo', font_family="Zapfino")
g.add_node('foo2', shape="roundrectangle", font_style="bolditalic", underlined_text="true")

g.add_edge('foo1', 'foo2')
g.add_node('abc', font_size="72", height="100")

g.add_node('bar', label="Multi\nline\ntext")
g.add_node('foobar', label="""Multi

#print g.get_graph()
z = g.get_graph()

print z

new_config_file = open("Ejemplo3" +'.graphml','w')
This needs to be changed.  The import call should be:
import pyyed
from pyyed import *

If you do this this code will generate graphml file to use in yEd software as an example
