netsim-tools: Network Topology Graphs

Someone using my netsim-tools sent me an intriguing question: “Would it be possible to get network topology graphs out of the tool?

Please note that we’re talking about creating graphs out of network topology described as a YAML data structure, not a generic GUI or draw my network tool. If you’re a GUI person, this is not what you’re looking for.

I did something similar a long while ago for a simple network automation project (and numerous networking engineers built really interesting stuff while attending the Building Network Automation Solutions course), so it seemed like a no-brainer. As always, things aren’t as easy as they look.
