I am evaluating alternatives to create graph views and would appreciate any recommendations on use of Graphiti+ELK.

I am not creating an editor, I am creating a view that displays graphs being generated under user control (I saw there is some material on using Graphiti in views not editors). In my application, nodes and edges will come and go as users make different selections. In my application, since layout is automated, users need to be able to select among a reasonable palette of layout algorithms.

Is Graphiti+ELK reasonably well-suited for this sort of thing? Any recommendations or pointers to example code would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Steve,

I can only speak for Graphiti because I do not know ELK.

Graphiti is mostly designed for interactive usage through so called features that are triggered by users in a graphical editor. But it is of course also possible to create a graphical model using some generator that creates the required artifacts. Displaying the result in an editor or a view is easy then.

How good that will integrate with ELK I cannot tell.

Hope that helps,
