networkx.MultiDiGraph.size

MultiDiGraph.size(weight=None)

Returns the number of edges or total of all edge weights.

Parameters:weight (string or None, optional (default=None)) – The edge attribute that holds the numerical value used as a weight. If None, then each edge has weight 1.
Returns:size – The number of edges or (if weight keyword is provided) the total weight sum.

If weight is None, returns an int. Otherwise a float (or more general numeric if the weights are more general).

Return type:numeric

Examples

>>> G = nx.path_graph(4)  # or DiGraph, MultiGraph, MultiDiGraph, etc
>>> G.size()
3
>>> G = nx.Graph()   # or DiGraph, MultiGraph, MultiDiGraph, etc
>>> G.add_edge('a', 'b', weight=2)
>>> G.add_edge('b', 'c', weight=4)
>>> G.size()
2
>>> G.size(weight='weight')
