This is a proof-of-concept of a graphical editor that allows you to to edit a Graphviz graph graphically, by drawing edges between nodes and inserting new nodes by using the mouse only. It also allows you to edit the textual DOT language description and directly see the graph transform itself into a new layout in an animated transition.
The GUI editor is perfectly usable as it is, but it has some simplifications that needs to be addressed in a production quality application in order not to hamper productivity:
- Draws only the standard type edge with alternating colors, although you can edit all aspects of it with the text editor afterwards and see the changes directly.
- Draws only two kinds of node shapes, alternating between ellipse and polygon and different colors and using predefined names. Also this can of course be changed with the text editor.
