igraph is not meant to be a visualisation framework; true, the Python and R 
interfaces can plot graphs, but these are primarily designed for saving 
publication-quality plots into PDF/PNG/SVG files and not for interactive 
visualisation on the screen. Basically, you would have to re-draw the graph 
every time something changes on the graph.

I know about someone who managed to embed igraph graphs successfully in a Gtk 
widget in Python (on Linux) to visualise graphs without saving them to an 
external file, so you may want to experiment with that if you are familiar with 
Python and Gtk:
