{{man warn|The FamilyLines plugin was integrated into Gramps 3.x|Information on usage can be found on the [[Gramps_{{Version manual}}_Wiki_Manual_-_Reports_-_part_5#Family_Lines_Graph |Family Lines Graph]] page. <br>Please note only download the version on this page if you have the very old (and now unsupported) Gramp 2.2.x}} {{languages|Familylines plugin}}[[Image:Familylines.gif|thumb|Example of a graph generated using FamilyLines.py, without thumbnail images.]][[Image:Familylines with thumbnails.gif|thumb|Example of a graph generated using FamilyLines.py, with thumbnail images.]]
The FamilyLines.py plugin was created to generate easy-to-follow graphs. Note that FamilyLines does not display all of the people in the database -- instead, this plugin generates smaller family trees, with many options to try and restrict the number of people included.
==Download and installation==
The plugin was created by [[User:Stephanecharette|Stéphane Charette]] and tested with Gramps GRAMPS version 2.2.6-1and 2.2.8-0. On Ubuntu 6.10 and 7.04, the plugin is installed by copying the file FamilyLines.py ([http://charette.no-ip.com:1234/Charette/FamilyLines.py download FamilyLines.py]) to /usr/share/gramps/plugins/.

===GraphViz Options===

This plugin uses [http://www.graphviz.org/ [Output_formats#Graphviz|GraphViz]]. GraphViz takes the .dot files and creates the final files, such as .gif, .png, .pdf, .ps, etc.
This first tab allows several GraphViz options to be set:
Some common examples of commands used to generate graphs from the familylines.dot file are:
;GIF:<pre>dot -v -Tgif -ofamilylines.gif familylines.dot</pre>;PNG :<pre>dot -v -Tpng -ofamilylines.png familylines.dot</pre>;PCL :<pre>dot -v -Tpcl -ofamilylines.pcl familylines.dot</pre>;PostScript :<pre>dot -v -Tps -ofamilylines.ps familylines.dot</pre>;SVG:<pre>dot -v -Tsvg -ofamilylines.svg familylines.dot</pre>
