I am in the process of creating an R package and I am hoping to incorporate infomap community detection into this package. Following mapequation.org I have previously used Ubuntu to calculate infomap communities and I am hoping to integrate igraph’s “cluster_infomap” function into my package so users do not have to leave R to identify infomap communities. The cluster_infomap function seems to be fairly similar to the methods I have used in Ubuntu, but I can’t tell if users are able to allow self-links or directed movements. Are these features available in the current function, or are they something the authors might consider adding in the future?
Thank you very much for your help!
