Documentation

Please check the guide and the API docs

Features

  • Simple graph creation API
  • Depth-first traversal / search
  • Breadth-first traversal / search
  • Topological sorting
  • Dijkstras algorithm for shortest paths
  • GraphML import / export (experimental)
  • force based layout (planned)
  • cross compiled for Scala 2.12, 2.13, Scala.js

Motivation

graphs was created to explore different type encoding for graphs and implement well-known algorithms

Goals

  • Support Scala.js
  • Support GraphML
  • Usages of the library and the core interfaces should be intuitive
  • The codebase should follow current idioms and integrate with mainstream libraries for Scala

Non-Goals

  • Support all possible graph types / scenarios
  • Provide a purely functional library

Alternatives

Graph for Scala is probably the most established graph library for Scala and supports many kinds of graphs explicitly (custom syntax etc.) with a big variety of algorithms and extensions (json, dot support).

Its still being worked on and recently added support for Scala.js. It might have a steeper learning curve but is more battle-tested and powerful then graphs.

quiver follows Martin Erwigs Functions Graph Library and appears to be more or less abandoned. Its less focused on algorithms but provides a more functional perspective on graphs.

graphs is inspired and influenced by both libraries. Please check them out to see if they fit your use case and preferences better.
