May 5, 2009: Github and --mode
To try it yourself, get the code and run pacgraph.py, get the code. It will generate an SVG. If Inkscape or imagemagick is installed it will also render a PNG. It might seem a little slow, but it's many times faster than Graphviz.
Right now Arch is the only supported distro, but writing new loaders is pretty easy.
Stuff supported from the command line:
Want to make only an SVG, no PNG?
Custom colors? Each of these takes one color, such as
pacgraph -b "#808080" -l "#ffffff" -b --background -l --link -t --top -d --dep
Font size can be set with
pacgraph -p 10 100 where the first number is the smallest point size, and the second is the largest.
Distro is chosen through
--mode. Current supported options are
arch (which graphs your installed packages) and
arch-repo (which graphs every offical package in the repositories). Do not be alarmed if
arch-repo takes a few minutes.
