Wire Your Ideas With React Flow!

A highly customizable React component for building interactive graphs and node-based editors.

🚀 Getting Started | 📖 Documentation | 📺 Examples | ☎️ Discord | 💎 React Flow Pro

Key Features

  • Easy to use: Seamless zooming and panning, single- and multi selection of graph elements and keyboard shortcuts are supported out of the box
  • Customizable: Different node and edge types and support for custom nodes with multiple handles and custom edges
  • Fast rendering: Only nodes that have changed are re-rendered and only those in the viewport are displayed
  • Hooks and Utils: Hooks for handling nodes, edges and the viewport and graph helper functions
  • Plugin Components: Background, MiniMap and Controls
  • Reliable: Written in Typescript and tested with cypress


React Flow includes a small attribution that links to the React Flow website. Per default the attribution is displayed in the bottom right corner. With the attribution we want to achieve that companies who are using React Flow in commercial applications finance the development of the library. We expect users who are using React Flow commercially to subscribe to React Flow Pro if they want to remove the attribution. In non-commercial applications you may hide the attribution without subscribing but are welcome to sponsor us on Github.


The easiest way to get the latest version of React Flow is to install it via npm:

npm install react-flow-renderer

Quick Start

This is only a very basic usage example of React Flow. To see everything that is possible with the library, please refer to the website for guides, examples and API reference.

import ReactFlow, { MiniMap, Controls } from 'react-flow-renderer';

function Flow({ nodes, edges, onNodesChange, onEdgesChange, onConnect }) {
  return (
      <MiniMap />
      <Controls />

Before you start you need to install the React Flow dependencies via npm install and the ones of the examples cd example && npm install.

If you want to contribute or develop custom features the easiest way is to start the dev server:

npm start

and the example app via:

cd example && npm start 

The example app serves the content of the example folder and watches changes inside the src folder. The examples are using the source of the src folder.


Testing is done with cypress. You can find the tests in the integration/flow folder. In order to run the tests do:

npm run test

Community Packages


React Flow was initially developed for datablocks, a graph-based editor for transforming, analyzing and visualizing data in your browser. Under the hood, React Flow depends on these great libraries:

  • d3-zoom - used for zoom, pan and drag interactions with the graph canvas
  • react-draggable - used for making the nodes draggable
  • zustand - internal state management


React Flow is MIT licensed.
