Just dropped in to your list after drawing a blank in your archives. I am attending an Open Source Developers Conference in Melbourne as we speak and got a referral to you from an admirer.
I'm looking for a Python (I'm new to python and graphics sw) module to visualise subsets of a database of related entities by printing boxes joined by lines.
The entities are linked with named n:m relationships and I'd like to select one and display it in a box (with the entity name) and all related entities likewise in boxes linked to each other by lines representing the relationships tagged with the names of those relationships.
I'm thinking I need some clever stuff to ensure as few lines as possible cross and mess up the visualisation.
At first glance I would say we have a mismatch and your very impressive software is probably overkill for what I want. If I'm on the wrong tram with matplotlib I'd appreciate a redirect. Otherwise, if anyone is prepared to say matplotlib is the way to go I'll download it and start playing.
