This plugin is created by Clement Levallois.
It converts a spreadsheet or a csv file into a network.
This plugin enables you to:
Start from a data table in Excel or csv format
In the data table, nodes are the entities listed in column A
Nodes' attributes must be listed in columns B, C, D, etc.
Connections will be created between nodes, when they have identical attributes.
Attributes can have values, stored in columns right next to the attribute.
We use the cosine similarity. Sounds complicated, but it is not. Check here.
Because they represent two slightly different files formats, and the plugin supports only .xlsx
If you select a csv file, you will be asked to indicate the field delimiter and optionally the text delimiter.
This is too bad. If there is enough demand for it I’ll add this feature, which is not trivial.
David appears on lines 2 and 5 (because he made two purchases). Only the latest line where David appears (line 5) will be taken into account.
