The visualisation is powered by the grapher package
library(grapher) library(tidygraph) # get cran network data deps <- cran_deps_graph( Inf, format = "igraph", include_base_r = FALSE ) # compute graph metrics graph <- as_tbl_graph(deps) %>% activate(nodes) %>% mutate( in_degree = centrality_degree(mode = "in") ) # build and save graph graph(graph) %>% graph_offline_layout(steps = 100, gravity = -20L) %>% hide_long_links(280) %>% scale_node_size(in_degree, c(10, 80)) %>% scale_link_color_coords() %>% capture_node_click() %>% save_graph_json("./assets/data/graph.json")
Each node is an R package on CRAN, connections represent dependencies
You can navigate the graph with the w a s d and the arrow keys ( ← ↑ → ↓ ) to rotate the camera a e will rotate it.
Click on a node to reveal more information about it.
Type the name of a package in the search box in the top left corner to zoom in on it.
While all packages are visualised not all dependencies are, to avoid a hairball graph edges that are over a certain length are hidden. This allows keeping sight of smaller communities.
