Graphviz

Graphviz (https://graphviz.org/) is a package of tools which visualize directed and undirected graphs with different strategies:

  • dot - default for directed graphs
  • neato - "spring model" layouts
  • fdp - similar to neato
  • sfdp - multiscale version of fdp for the layout of large graphs
  • twopi - radial layouts
  • circo - circular layout

The syntax of source files is DOT (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DOT_(graph_description_language) ), the default file extention is .gv.
