I don't really know gephi and even less the AlchemyAPI, so it is up to somebody else to answer... Now, if it is made with Java, there is no reason it won't work (unless managing graphics on its own, or something like that).
I've managed to import his sample .gml file, but still not sure how to use one of my own files. Were you able to? If so, how? Im thinking of making my file look just like his. But afraid that will limit the functionality that I will probably need later on.
Is there any other way to have more control over the aesthetics of gephi export without having to go through all this trouble, and be keep the same functionality?
Also, do you have to install the gephi toolkit into Gephi. I've looked at the source read me file and says the demos are all in NetBeans. But I like barely know what that is...
Im off to the Gephi forum to look for some answers there.
My entire post was just deleted :'( It basically went like this:
Sorry for the delay.
Is your file a .gml file? I managed to import a file but the tags for each section never showed. I had to retrieve real-time data so in order to use it with Gephi I had to save it into a graph file and then import it into Gephi which was very long and complex.
I think the only control over aesthetics is down to the layout algorithm you use. Force Atlas two is really good because it spaces all the nodes out. You would have to set the repulsion to really high (like 22000). The functionality is controlled more by Processing. So mousePressed, mouseDragged etc will move the position of the graph. In the example that's how the the graph moves. Displaying stuff on each node is also done in Processing I think so the functionality (depending on what it is) should be limited too much.
You don't have to install the toolkit into Gephi as it's just a stripped down version of the software, it has no GUI. The software is easier to use and is more intuitive.
For the demos, I don't think you need Netbeans. If you change the file extension to .pde, it might run that way. Try it out and let me know.
If nothing I said works, tell me and I'll try some stuff out.
