Packages similar to graph-tool
- igraph: A graph manipulation library written in C, but also with bindings for python and R. Very nice collection of algorithms.
- NetworkX: A pure python module for graph manipulation.
- Network Workbench: A Java-based toolkit for network analysis.
- bgl-python: The official python bindings for the Boost Graph Library. However, it no longer seems to be maintained.
Libraries and algorithms
