Graphviz

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

Has anyone played around with Graphviz and PHP on Uniserver?

 

I would like to ask anyone who has installed Graphviz on Uniserver if they would be kind enough to post some step by step instructions along with a sample script that I could use to test it?

 

Best regards

Michael

Do you have any programs (or scripts) that you want to use Graphviz with in mind?

... and that "one in a thousand" can afford to get a Linux server, where you can install Graphviz with only one command (at least on my distro :D)

 

The same applies with ImageMagick / GraphicsMagick, isn't the PHP GD extension (which is very easy to install) enough for most people?

Wow, that's probably the one of the first times you've agreed with me :D

Not quite the answer to the question BUT....

 

I managed to get Graphviz running under MediaWiki on Uniform Server by following the instructions from the link below - should be possible to adapt this for other non-Wiki uses, the graphviz.php from the instructions is fairly easy to understand.

I only had to change one thing: For some reason, Uniform Server didn't like the space character in the pathname "Program Files" (maybe I did something wrong...).

I just copied the graphviz directory (including the "bin" subdirectory) to c:\Graphviz and adjusted the path names in the instructions accordingly, and it worked fine.

 

Graphviz + Mediawiki is a very powerful combo, and it's really nice to be able to run it locally under Windows with Uniform Server.
