Use this if you are using igraph from R
This function implements the multilevel modularity optimization algorithm for finding community structure, see references below. It is based on the modularity measure and a hierarchical approach.
cluster_louvain(graph, weights = NULL, resolution = 1)
graph 
The input graph. 
weights 
The weights of the edges. It must be a positive numeric vector,

resolution 
Optional resolution parameter that allows the user to adjust the resolution parameter of the modularity function that the algorithm uses internally. Lower values typically yield fewer, larger clusters. The original definition of modularity is recovered when the resolution parameter is set to 1. 
This function implements the multilevel modularity optimization algorithm for finding community structure, see VD Blondel, JL Guillaume, R Lambiotte and E Lefebvre: Fast unfolding of community hierarchies in large networks, https://arxiv.org/abs/0803.0476 for the details.
It is based on the modularity measure and a hierarchical approach. Initially, each vertex is assigned to a community on its own. In every step, vertices are reassigned to communities in a local, greedy way: each vertex is moved to the community with which it achieves the highest contribution to modularity. When no vertices can be reassigned, each community is considered a vertex on its own, and the process starts again with the merged communities. The process stops when there is only a single vertex left or when the modularity cannot be increased any more in a step.
