graphviz layer

Table of ContentsClose


1. Description

This layer adds support for the open-source graph declaration system graphviz to Spacemacs.

1.1. Features:

  • Syntax highlighting for .dot files
  • Integration of a live-preview of .dot files via graphviz-dot-mode.
  • Control of the graphviz compiler directly from emacs.
  • Support for formatting .dot files automatically.

2. Install

To use this configuration layer, add it to your ~/.spacemacs. You will need to add graphviz to the existing dotspacemacs-configuration-layers list in this file.

To get the compilation working, you will also need the native package graphviz installed in your system.

3. Configuration

If the live preview is not always updating the rendered image properly, you can try to adjust the value of graphviz-dot-revert-delay higher to give the compiler more time to finish generating the file before reverting the buffer.

4. Key bindings
