Dear Yoann,

thanks for your quick answer.

I am aware of that project. It looks like this tool does not handle steps properly. Although gs-gephi dynamically creates a graph in Gephi, it is not possible to store this graph with the option "dynamic" in Gephi :-(

Looks like I have to program such a converter by myself. But thanks anyway as I wanted to know whether such a tool exists or not.

Kind regards,

Hi Christian,

I don't know if such tool exists, especially when dynamic graphs are involved.

However you may be interested in a project from last Google Summer of Code where an online interconnection between GS and Gephi has been implemented using the Gephi's Graph Streaming Plugin.

A video is worth an explanation:

The project itself:
