Very usefull to quickly represent data that was generated by codes (I mean c, php, etc.).
To start with this app, I suggest to go here http://www.graphviz.org/Gallery.php and to see some example.

FYI, this is now Intel-only. The last PPC version is:

I really want to like this software, especially in light of its 2 Apple Design Awards, but the latest version is bogus. It's badly packaged, there's zero documentation, and I don't even know how to create a new document to experiment with.

Straight to the trash it goes! :(

I use different de-install packages t find that out. Most applications, even those with drag and drop installs, generate files and have plugins elsewhere. AppZapper, AppCleaner, CleanUp to mention a few.

This is really a non-issue. Especially if the source is a trusted developer.

It's not a non-issue. There are 40mb of binaries (in /bin!) and libraries (in /lib!) in here before we even get to the 1.1mb graphviz application. That's a lot of "stuff" that's just being dropped into your system at an extremely low level without even an uninstallation script to clean it up.

What's wrong with an install pkg?

An installer package is basically a big unknown, outside of using a 3rd party program like Pacifist to see what's in it. I much prefer the .dmg/drag application to install approach, because at least then I probably know where everything I need to delete if I don't use the software is.

Would have liked to try this but until the developer learns how to set up proper downloads I will pass. Even for free. Have you heard of .dmg

If I recall correctly, I have used a version of Graphviz on a version OSX before 10.5. Did you put out a pre-Leopard version of Graphviz at one point, and if so, can you make it available for us 10.4 folks?

See previous versions here:

(all you had to do was to go to the developer site and access the 'download' page)

For some reason there was a big whitespace between the top of the page and the previous versions, and I didn't scroll down. D'oh!

Thank you!

To MacUpdateAdminGuys&Gals and to these Developers,

You-all seem to be missing the point. We Tiger users need a *current* version of these apps, not a moldy *previous* version. ;)

I guess I'll try building from the source tarballs but note it isn't for the faint-of-heart (that's what MacPorts users will end-up doing as well). Also note this project in particular looks like it'll require X11 and all sorts of other non-Mac GUI stuff e.g. GNome, most of which I have already installed locally here as shared libs - thus my build probably won't be a self-contained one with static libs and I wouldn't be able to distribute my build for others to use this way - but that's the way Things Ought To Be™ on a true-blue *ix system for a whole gaggle of technical reasons, most importantly the moldy pre-packaged previous versions will undoubtedly be using old code from the same dependent projects as well.

Y'see how Leopard-only developers are ABUSING the open-source traditions here? Do y'all see that???

Yes indeed even Apple have gotten off-track in this regard also - their “promise” of being “more Linux-friendly” is long-long-long gone IMO.

This website is going to need a new filter that lists only the apps that are known to be Jaguar-, Panther-, Tiger-compatible vis-à-vis Leopard-only etc. etc. etc. etc. etc. And appropriate options be placed on the Developers “Add A File” panel as Required items before posting the app made publicly available.

…ok I had my spiel, bring on the flamewars…

Graphviz .dot file extension interferes with Microsoft Word's document template files (.dot). I don't know if this is intentional, but its a little annoying.

"Microsoft Word?" What's that? Oh! So why are you using expensive, closed source, proprietary, insecure, license-restricted software when Open Office exists?

I know I know - way of topic - the Devil made me do it ;-)

Thanks for looking.

There's not much I can do since .dot is the original UNIX file name extension for Graphviz documents (been in existence for some years now).

In Mac OS 9 or on a HFS system, you could tag such files with creator = MS Word or creator = Graphviz and the system would sort it out. In Mac OS X, you can't be guaranteed this behavior especially if you don't use HFS for your file system, and creating it directly in another text editor would tag the wrong creator anyway.

I'll investigate further, perhaps the creator tag can be fixed when you create a New document.

v15 should fix this issue, especially on HFS volumes. Now dot files are created with a text file type and Graphviz creator, which should properly associate with Graphviz rather than MS Word.

This tool does not seem to give you any means to actually create, author, or manipulate the graphs. All I could do was open the provided DOT files, change the basic layout engine preferences, and export the diagrams to a variety of file formats.

How th actually create the DOT files gaphically is not obvious to me. Maybe I'm just having a bad day.

Thanks for looking at Graphviz. After you create a new graph using the New menu command, click on the Edit toolbar item and choose a text editor e.g. TextEdit. You can then modify the DOT commands using the editor, and saving it will automatically re-render the graph.

The DOT language is fairly straightforward and there is some online help available.

Let me confess to some laziness. I went ahead and looked at a sample DOT file and then made my own DOT file using the powerful vi command. No problem!

Here is what is TOTALLY COOL about Graphviz. Say I have it open and display my DOT file, then I go into vi and make some edits. Each time I save a change to the file, Graphviz automatically updates its graph. It knows when the file changed! This is insanely great!

Thanks to the developers for their quick and courteous support here on MacUpdate!

awesome. If only this was out when I had that class where we had to draw those finite and pushdown automata... The actual graphviz package is too difficult to get running when you're starting on it the night before.

The Graphviz layout programs take descriptions of graphs in a simple text language, and make diagrams in useful formats, such as images and SVG for web pages, PDF or Postscript for inclusion in other documents; or display in an interactive graph browser. (Graphviz also supports GXL, an XML dialect.) Graphviz has many useful features for concrete diagrams, such as options for colors, fonts, tabular node layouts, line styles, hyperlinks, rolland custom shapes.
