Reingold Tilford

rjalex
Hello everyone,
I need to plot a 5K node/edges tree (a company directory) and after many
experiments have seen that the Reingold Tilford (RT) layouting gives the
best results.

I have tried using iGraph which has this algo but cannot manage to get nice
visual results.
Also tried exporting the iGraph layout to GraphML and opening it with Gephi
but also this does not work well.

Is there a way to get a RT (linear or circular) graph layout with
graph-tool?

Thank you VERY much.
Keep safe!
Robert

There is support for radial tree layout:

https://graph-tool.skewed.de/static/doc/draw.html#graph_tool.draw.radial_tree_layout

If you want support for Reingold-Tilford in particular, please open an
issue in the website, and I will implement it when time permits.

Best,
Tiago
