An out-of-the-box React component for visualizing graph data.

Key features:

  • An easily embeddable React component to render force-directed graphs.
  • Integrated translation into library specific formats from a unified standard (GraphQL).
  • A straightforward way to add (rule-based) styling and interactions to your visualizations.
  • Support for multiple renderers & graph layouts.

React component for visualizing graph data.

Getting Started

TLDR - Try the Online Demo!

This project wraps the library in a Storybook UI. More information on Storybook here.

The Storybook provides examples for each of the functionalities this library provides. For each of these examples, you can:

  • Change the config parameters in the "Controls" tab and see how they affect the visualization ;
  • Get the corresponding JSX definition of the React component

Using the component in your own apps

To use this component in your own React app, first install the library:

npm install react-graph-viz-engine
  • or -
yarn add react-graph-viz-engine

Then, you can include the component anywhere inside your app:

import GraphVisualization from 'react-graph-viz-engine'
import React from "react";

export const App = () => {
return <GraphVisualization
        style = {},
        interactions = {} />

The Storybook contains examples on what to use in the fields of the GraphVisualization component.

Extending the library

This library can be extended with your own graph renderers and customizations.
See src/component/renderer/cytoscape and src/component/renderer/react-force-graph for examples.

After cloning this repository, install and run the storybook:

yarn install
yarn start

Each component (src/component/renderer/) should contain the following five files:

renderer.tsx:       The react component that renders the visualization.
formatter.ts:       Code responsible for translating the generic data object into a visualization-specific data format.
config.ts:          A place for generic config variables for the visualization.
config-mapper.ts:   Code responsible for translating the generic configuration object into visualization-specific style config.
style.css:          CSS styling to apply to the React component.

Don't forget to extend src/component/graph/Graph.tsx to include your custom component.

Feature Requests / Issues

This is an experimental release of the library. If you have any questions, please reach out to the maintainers of this project.
