networkx.Graph.get_edge_data

Graph.get_edge_data(u, v, default=None)[source]

Returns the attribute dictionary associated with edge (u, v).

This is identical to G[u][v] except the default is returned instead of an exception if the edge doesn’t exist.

Parameters
  • u, v (nodes)

  • default (any Python object (default=None)) – Value to return if the edge (u, v) is not found.

Returns

edge_dict – The edge attribute dictionary.

Return type

dictionary

Examples

>>> G = nx.path_graph(4)  # or DiGraph, MultiGraph, MultiDiGraph, etc
>>> G[0][1]
{}

Warning: Assigning to G[u][v] is not permitted. But it is safe to assign attributes G[u][v]['foo']

>>> G[0][1]['weight'] = 7
>>> G[0][1]['weight']
7
>>> G[1][0]['weight']
7
>>> G = nx.path_graph(4)  # or DiGraph, MultiGraph, MultiDiGraph, etc
>>> G.get_edge_data(0, 1)  # default edge data is {}
{}
>>> e = (0, 1)
>>> G.get_edge_data(*e)  # tuple form
{}
>>> G.get_edge_data('a', 'b', default=0)  # edge not in graph, return 0
