May 24, 2009: Debian support and --console
To try it yourself, 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 well supported distro, but writing new loaders is pretty easy. There is partial support for Debian.
Stuff supported from the command line:
Want to make only an SVG, no PNG?
Just want a quick summary?
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) and
debian (which parses
dpkg output). Do not be alarmed if
arch-repo takes a few minutes.
