Dot2tex is a tool for converting graphs rendered by Graphviz to formats that can be used with LaTeX.
Before you install dot2tex you have to have a working Python environment installed on your system. Dot2tex has been developed and tested with Python 2.7, but it is also compatible with Python 2.6. In addition you'll need the following modules:
- pyparsing. A recent version is required. Older version like for instance 1.3.2 does not work with dot2tex.
- preview A stand-alone part of the preview-latex/AUCTeX bundle. Required for preprocessing graphs with LaTeX.
- PGF/TikZ 2.0 or later required.
Note. If you have dot2tex version 2.5.0 or older installed, please remove the old version of the dot2tex.py file in your SCRIPTS directory before you install the latest dot2tex version. Otherwise the new dot2tex wrapper script will try to load the dot2tex.py as a module.
The easiest way to install dot2tex is to use pip:
$ pip install dot2tex
The command will locate dot2tex and download it automatically along with dependencies. Note that documentation and examples are not installed by default.
Download a zip or a tarball from the download_ page. Unpack the file to a directory and run
python on the
$ python setup.py install
This will create a dot2tex module in your Python module directory and a wrapper
script in your
SCRIPTS directory. Note that a few warnings will be
displayed. You can safely ignore them. The warnings are shown because there is
some extra information in the
setup.py file that distutils does not understand.
The development version of
dot2tex is available on GitHub.
