  • Specify an output file, showing all object types:

pw-dot --output {{path/to/}} --all

  • Print .dot graph to stdout, showing all object properties:

pw-dot --output - --detail

  • Generate a graph from a remote instance, showing only linked objects:

pw-dot --remote {{remote_name}} --smart

pw-dot --lr
