Qt Visual Graph Editor

Qt Visual Graph Editor

Github All Releases GitHub release

qvge is a multiplatform graph editor written in C++/Qt. Its main goal is to make possible visually edit two-dimensional graphs in a simple and intuitive way.

Please note that qvge is not a replacement for such a software like Gephi, Graphvis, Dot, yEd, Dia and so on. It is neither a tool for “big data analysis” nor a math application. It is really just a simple graph editor :)

Main Features

Some users’ feedback

“Qt Visual Graph Editor is a fairly straightforward, open-source tool that enables users to design relatively simple graphs for their >projects. It comes with a decent set of features and is very intuitive.”

“It seems to me that my development have become more efficient after when I began using QVGE. This is much more useful than UML, because that I don’t have to change sheets and to remember several usages and I can draw graphs swiftly.”

“Lightweight, multi-platform graph editor that allows users to edit two-dimensional graphs in a quick and intuitive way, as an alternative to more complex software.”

“It’s user experience is very good. It’s because how to operate is sophisticated so intuitive and very simple. Because of that, it’s easy to begin using. A user can entirely concentrate to essence of content the whole time. Because of simpleness, the content is not noisy and easy to understand, and usable much generally to design, refactor and output a structure such as a organization, a software, logic, routes and all other relationships without learning usage separately.”

Or you can get qvge’s sources and build them by yourself. In this case you need to have installed Qt 5.x toolkit and corresponding C++ compiler with C++11 support. qvge uses native Qt build system (main project file is qvgeapp.pro) so it should look like:

cd <directory-with-qvgeapp.pro>
qmake -r

Linux GCC:


or Windows MinGW:


or Windows MSVC:
