Python Graph Library


I'm writing a python application that will make heavy use of a graph data structure. Nothing horribly complex, but I'm thinking some sort of graph/graph-algorithms library would help me out. I've googled around, but I don't find anything that particularly leaps out at me.

Anyone have any good recommendations?

There are two excellent choices:




I like NetworkX, but I read good things about igraph as well. I routinely use NetworkX with graphs with 1 million nodes with no problem (it's about double the overhead of a dict of size V + E)

If you want a feature comparison, see this from the Networkx-discuss list
