OpenGraphiti does not use the NetJSON format. So, the next step in our quest toward multi-sensor graph fusion adventure using “software as a sensor” is to write more JSON files in NetJSON format. At first, I wrote OpenGraphiti compatible JSON files and created some OG examples to get the ball rolling. Today I modified that code to write the same objects in NetJSON format to be displayed in a web brower using netjsongraph.js and the underlying JS graphing engine.
In a nutshell, besides being completely different graphing engines, netjsongraph.js makes extensive use of CSS to set the attributes (color, size, shape, etc) of nodes and edges and works in a web browser, obviously. OG does not support web clients and CSS at this time (and seems like the development of OG is at a near standstill these days).
More on this later as I get more experience with these JSON-based graphing engines.
