Python and Network Visualization

From: Justin K.

Someone at last night's meetup asked about generating SVGs of network diagrams. If you haven't already looked at it, you should check out Graphviz (http://www.graphviz.org/).

It's distinguished by the fact that you describe your graph in terms of vertices and edges in a .dot file, and can then generate different visual representations of the underlying graph automatically. There are Python bindings available.

One of our Loomia.com hosts mentioned that he knew of a JavaScript library which might be suitable for the same task... did you find the link?
