knitr::opts_chunk$set( collapse = TRUE, comment = "#>", warning = FALSE ) library(sigmajs)

You don't have to stick to nodes and edges data.frames, sigma.js accepts other formats.

igraph

You can create a graph from an igraph object.

data("lesmis_igraph") # load dataset sigmajs() %>% sg_from_igraph(lesmis_igraph) %>% sg_settings(drawLabels = FALSE, drawEdgeLabels = FALSE)

You can also pass layout, if ommitted the function will use layout_nicely from the igraph package.

layout <- igraph::layout_on_grid(lesmis_igraph) # create layout sigmajs() %>% sg_from_igraph(lesmis_igraph, layout) %>% sg_settings(drawLabels = FALSE, drawEdgeLabels = FALSE)
