Render Graphs Using 'Sigma.js'

Create interactive graph visualizations using 'Sigma.js' <>. This package is meant to be used in conjunction with 'igraph', replacing the (somewhat underwhelming) plotting features of the package. The idea is to quickly render graphs, regardless of their size, in a way that allows for easy, iterative modification of aesthetics. Because 'Sigma.js' is a 'javascript' library, the visualizations are inherently interactive and are well suited for integration with 'Shiny' apps. While there are several 'htmlwidgets' focused on network visualization, they tend to underperform on medium to large sized graphs. 'Sigma.js' was designed for larger network visualizations and this package aims to make those strengths available to 'R' users.
