Read viz attributes from GEXF files

So one of the new features that I’ve working on is processing viz attributes. In the CRAN version of rgexf, the function read.gexf only reads in non-visual attributes and the graph structure itself, which is no longer true as of today (at least for the static viz attributes, all the other dynamic features supported by GEXF will come in the future). We start by loading the R packages and reading the “lesmiserables.

Reboot of rgexf

The rgexf R package has been around a couple of years now, but without much going on on CRAN (my bad!). In this post I’ll show how to use the new version (on development and soon the be shipped to CRAN) together with the netdiffuseR R package to visualize a random diffusion process.
