The ns-3 topology generator project aims to provide a quick and easy way to create ns-3 topology. It provides intuitive GUI so you can add nodes, link, applications, ... and generates C++ simulation code for ns-3.
This tool has been written by Pierre Weiss and Sebastien Vincent, University of Strasbourg.
You need Qt 4 libraries to compile and use ns-3 topology generator.
The code seems to be a bit outdated, and it is no longer able to generate code compliant with the latest ns-3 releases.The generated code will have to be modified in order to fix all the errors (e.g., missing headers) and remove the deprecated functions.
To download the project:
$ hg clone http://svnet.u-strasbg.fr/hg/ns-3-generator
To build the project:
$ qmake $ make
To use it, simply run:
To generate the API documentation (you need doxygen tool): $ doxygen Doxyfile
The HTML generated documentation is located in doc/html/ directory of sources.
Configurations may be saved to an XML file and later loaded.
File:Ns-3-generator-test.cc.patch: C++ code generated from the above screenshot. Python code can also be generated. The configuration can be saved in XML and reloaded. Note: two applications were added and can be sen in the generated code (not visible in the screenshot).
- Ability to configure tracing
