networkx.DiGraph.add_node

DiGraph.add_node(node_for_adding, **attr)[source]

Add a single node node_for_adding and update node attributes.

Parameters:
  • node_for_adding (node) – A node can be any hashable Python object except None.
  • attr (keyword arguments, optional) – Set or change node attributes using key=value.

Examples

>>> G = nx.Graph()   # or DiGraph, MultiGraph, MultiDiGraph, etc
>>> G.add_node(1)
>>> G.add_node('Hello')
>>> K3 = nx.Graph([(0, 1), (1, 2), (2, 0)])
>>> G.add_node(K3)
>>> G.number_of_nodes()
3

Use keywords set/change node attributes:

>>> G.add_node(1, size=10)
>>> G.add_node(3, weight=0.4, UTM=('13S', 382871, 3972649))

Notes

A hashable object is one that can be used as a key in a Python dictionary. This includes strings, numbers, tuples of strings and numbers, etc.

On many platforms hashable items also include mutables such as NetworkX Graphs, though one should be careful that the hash doesn’t change on mutables.
