Dynamic map of a mesh network

Hi !

I am desperately in need of help with creating a network map with ui-template dashboard.
the input is a payload, like this:


The result should be a graphical representation of the nodes, showing the total number of nodes and the connections between nodes and their subnodes, like a directory tree stucture.

Any help highly appritiated !

You should use a 3rd-party graph library (don't mix up charts and graphs, graphs are interconnected nodes, charts are representations of mostly numeric data).

This is my Obsidian note on the subject:

I use cytoscape.js in the list above for my Node RED Zwave Module Mesh map feature

works really well!


Thank you for the tips, but I'am afraid, deploying any those sollutions are above my capabilities :frowning_face:
