Usage

TrivialGraphFormat

getOutput()

The getOutput(Graph $graph): string method can be used to export the given graph instance.

$graph = new Fhaculty\Graph\Graph();

$a = $graph->createVertex('a');
$b = $graph->createVertex('b');
$a->createEdgeTo($b);

$exporter = new Graphp\TrivialGraphFormat\TrivialGraphFormat();
$data = $exporter->getOutput($graph);

file_put_contents('example.tgf', $data);
echo $data;

The TGF output will look something like this:

1 a
2 b
#
1 2

This method only supports exporting the basic graph structure, with all vertices and directed and undirected edges.

Note that TGF does not support the notion of directed and undirected edges. As such, this method will print two edges in opposite directions for any undirected edges.

Note that TGF does not support the notion of structured attributes. As such, this method will print the mathematical attributes as vertex and edge labels as appropriate.

Install

The recommended way to install this library is through composer. New to composer?

{
    "require": {
        "graphp/trivial-graph-format": "~0.1.0"
    }
}

This project aims to run on any platform and thus does not require any PHP extensions and supports running on legacy PHP 5.3 through current PHP 7+ and HHVM. It's highly recommended to use PHP 7+ for this project.

Tests

To run the test suite, you first need to clone this repo and then install all dependencies through Composer:

$ composer install

To run the test suite, go to the project root and run:

$ php vendor/bin/phpunit
