Hypergraph drawing using Graphviz and Asymptote

Usage

Requires Python 3 (tested with 3.9.13), pydot (tested with 1.4.2), Asymptote (tested with 2.67) and LaTeX (tested with TeX Live 2021).

To render a hypergraph specified in graph.dot, execute the following:

cat graph.dot | dot -Tdot | python3 ./dot_hypergraph_to_asymptote.py /dev/stdin > graph.asy
asy -f png graph.asy

You may adjust the font size, width/height of the output and more by editing the values at the beginning of the script.

To embed the graph in a LaTeX document, set output_latex to true.

\usepackage[inline]{asymptote}
% ...
\begin{figure}
  \centering
  \input{output.asy}
  \caption{...}
  \label{fig:...}
\end{figure}

Example

graph.dot:

digraph {
	edge [dir="back"];
	"Node 1" -> "Node 2" [label="Edge 1"]
	"Node 1" -> "Node 3" [label="Edge 1"]
	"Node 3" -> "Node 4" [label="Edge 2"]
	"Node 3" -> "Node 5" [label="Edge 2"]
	"Node 5" -> "Node 6" [label="Edge 3"]
	"Node 4" -> "Node 6" [label="Edge 3"]
	"Node 2" -> "Node 7" [label="Edge 4"]
	"Node 6" -> "Node 7" [label="Edge 4"]
	"Node 2" -> "Node 8" [label="Edge 5"]
	"Node 7" -> "Node 8" [label="Edge 5"]
}
