All tidygraph algorithms are meant to be called inside tidygraph verbs such as mutate(), where the graph that is currently being worked on is known and thus not needed as an argument to the function. In the off chance that you want to use an algorithm outside of the tidygraph framework you can use with_graph() to set the graph context temporarily while the algorithm is being evaluated.

with_graph(graph, expr)



The tbl_graph to use as context


The expression to evaluate


The value of expr


gr <- play_erdos_renyi(10, 0.3)

with_graph(gr, centrality_degree())
#>  [1] 1 2 0 4 5 2 3 4 4 3
