Raphtory is a platform for building and analysing temporal networks. The library includesmethods for creating networks from a variety of data sources; algorithms to explore theirstructure and evolution; and an extensible GraphQL server for deployment of applications builton top. Raphtory’s core engine is built in Rust, for efficiency, with Python interfaces, for easeof use. Raphtory is developed by network scientists, with a background in Physics, AppliedMathematics, Engineering and Computer Science, for use across academia and industry.
