Fast creation of LFR Benchmark graphs in R

June 27, 2023 | schochastics

Almost a year ago, I introduced my most recent network related R packages netUtils. The package is meant as a catch-all package where I gather network analytic methods that haven’t yet been implemented in R and may not deserve there own package. Bet... [Read more...]

rang: make ancient R code run again

February 15, 2023 | schochastics

Reproducibility is a big issue in the (computational) world of science. Code that runs today might not run tomorrow because packages are updated, functions deprecated or removed, and whole programming languages change. In the case of R, there exist ... [Read more...]

Extending network analysis in R with netUtils

August 26, 2022 | schochastics

During the last 5 years, I have accumulated various scripts with (personal) convenience functions for network analysis and I also implemented new methods from time to time which I could not find in any other package in R. The package netUtils gathers all these functions and makes them available for anyone ... [Read more...]

Academicons: my first quarto extension

July 16, 2022 | schochastics

I have been following the development of quarto for a while now and I am pretty excited about it. Not only its features but also its rich and detailed documentation will make me transition from Rmarkdown to Quarto in the long run. While moving my personal webpage, I realized though ...

Animating Network Evolutions with gganimate

September 14, 2021 | schochastics

People regularly ask me if it is possible to animate a network evolution with {{ggraph}} and {{gganimate}}. Unfortunately this is not yet possible. But fear not! There is a way to still get it done with some hacking around the ggraph package. In th... [Read more...]

Raspberry Pi E-Paper Dashboard with R

October 15, 2020 | schochastics

For once, this is not a post on an R package for network analysis or random R code. This post is about a DIY adventure of mine with a little R code on the side. I have always been intrigued by the Raspberry Pi, but never really engaged with it ...

Sketchy, Hand-drawn-like Networks in R

August 22, 2020 | schochastics

This post introduces the R package rougnet, which wraps the java script library rough.js to draw sketchy, hand-drawn-like networks. From all my network packages, this is probably the most useless but most fun one I developed. The package is so far only available on github, but it already has ... [Read more...]

Visualizing Multilevel Networks with graphlayouts

April 25, 2020 | schochastics

This post introduces layout_as_multilevel(), a new function in the {{graphlayouts}} package. As the name suggests, this function can be use to visualize multilevel networks. A multilevel network consists of two (or more) levels with different node sets and intra-level ties. For instance, one level could be scientists and ... [Read more...]

A package for analysing signed networks

January 24, 2020 | schochastics

This post introduces the R package signnet, available on CRAN, which implements several methods to analyze signed networks. Signed networks include two types of relations, positive and negative ones (say friends and enemies). They are fundamentally different from traditional networks and require a very different set of tools to analyse ... [Read more...]

A large repository of networkdata

December 14, 2019 | schochastics

There are many network repositories out there that offer a large variety of amazing free data. (See the awesome network analysis list on github for an overview.) The problem is, that network data can come in many formats. Either in plain text as edgelist or adjacency matrix, or in a ... [Read more...]
