Converts 'go mod graph' output into GraphViz's DOT language.

  • takes no options or arguments
  • it reads the output generated by “go mod graph” on stdin
  • generates a DOT language and writes to stdout

Usage:

go mod graph | modgv | dot -Tpng -o graph.png

For each module:

  • the node representing the greatest version (i.e., the version chosen by Go's MVS algorithm) is colored green
  • other nodes, which aren't in the final build list, are colored grey
