NAME

GraphViz2::Abstract::Node - Deal with nodes independent of a Graph

VERSION

version 0.002000

SYNOPSIS

use GraphViz2::Abstract::Node;

my $node = GraphViz2::Abstract::Node->new(
        color =>  ... ,
        id    =>  ... ,
        label =>  ... ,
);

# Mutate $node

$node->label("Asdft");

my $fillcolor = $node->fillcolor(); # Knows that the fill color is light grey despite never setting it.

# Later:

$graph->add_node(%{ $node->as_hash }); # Adds only the data that is not the same as GraphViz's defaults
$graph->add_node(%{ $node->as_canon_hash }); # Adds all the data, including hardcoded defaults

DESCRIPTION

Working with GraphViz2, I found myself frequently needing shared styles for things, and I often had trouble knowing which fields were and weren't valid for given things, for instance: Nodes.

Its reasonably straight forward to ask the question "What is the attribute foo applicable to" using the GraphViz website, but much harder to know "What are all the attributes applicable to foo".

Let alone work with them in a user friendly way from code.

Naming Rationale

I tried to choose a name that was not so likely to threaten GraphViz2 if GraphViz2 wanted to make a different variation of what I'm doing, but as part of GraphViz2 itself.

As such, I plan on a few ::Abstract things, that aim to be stepping stones for dealing with complex data independent of GraphViz2, but in such a way that they make importing that data into GraphViz2 easy.

METHODS

as_hash

This method returns all the values of all properties that DIFFER from the defaults.

e.g.

Node->new( color => 'black' )->as_hash();

Will return an empty list, as the default color is normally black.

as_canon_hash

This method returns all the values of all properties, INCLUDING defaults.

e.g.

Node->new( color => 'black' )->as_canon_hash();

Will return a very large list containing all the properties that we know the default values for.
