The Graphviz layout programs take descriptions of graphs in a simple text language, and make diagrams in several useful formats such as images and SVG for web pages, Postscript for inclusion in PDF or other documents; or display in an interactive graph browser. (Graphviz also supports GXL, an XML dialect.)
May 25, 2017 · structure (i.e. what nodes are, how they are connected, etc) and Graphviz will figure out the layout of the image by itself. Usually, the generated layout works out well but quite often, like this postmentioned, can be a "finicky beast". So, I decide to share some tips I learned about
May 27, 2012 · GraphViz is a popular framework for generating graphs. The cornerstone of this is a simple format for describing a directed graph in a simple text file(commonly referred to as a ‘dot’ file) combined with a variety of different layouts for displaying the graph.
Description. Layered drawings of directed graphs. The algorithm aims edges in the same direction (top to bottom, or left to right) and then attempts to avoid edge crossings and reduce edge length. Edges are routed as spline curves and are thus drawn very smoothly. This algorithm is very suitable for state machine and activity diagrams, where the direction of edges has an important role.

In contrast to Graphviz and other graph optimizers, graphopt does not use a finite-pass approach to layout optimization. Instead, it uses basic principles of physics to iteratively determine an optimal layout. Each node is given mass and an electric charge, and each edge is represented as a spring.
