Network Visualization of R Package Dependencies by Zuguang Gu

The network contains R packages that contribute heavy dependencies to their child packages. Node size correspond to the out-degree, i.e., the number of child packages. The link represents the parent-child relation. The visualization can be thought as stars in a night sky. The light stars are the R packages that contribute extremely high dependencies to the R package ecosystem.

I used Cytoscape to visualize the network with the layout: Compound Sprint Embedder.
