What is GraphView

GraphView is a new view plugin that presents a navigable descendant tree using the current active person as a starting point. Clicking another person in the tree will make that person the active person and will redraw the tree based on them.


  • Interactive
  • The active person is highlighted
  • Clicking a person will redraw the tree based on that person
  • Clicking the active person will show the parent family of the active person, thereby allowing previous generations to be shown
  • The view can be panned by using mouse click and drag. Select the background of the tree and drag the mouse to pan the view
  • The view can be zoomed using a slider


The GraphView plugin can be installed by downloading GraphView.addon.tgz and extracting the contents of the file to your Gramps .plugins directory. Graphview also requires the following to be installed:

  • Graphviz. If you can run the Gramps Graph reports then you already have this installed.
  • PyGoocanvas
