yFiles React Organization Chart Component

NPM version

yFiles React Organization Chart Component

Welcome to the yFiles React Organization Chart component, a powerful and versatile React component based on the yFiles library. This component enables seamless integration for displaying organization charts in your React applications.

Getting Started


To use the Organization Chart component, yFiles for HTML is required. You can evaluate yFiles for 60 days free of charge on my.yworks.com. See Licensing for more information on this topic.

You can learn how to work with the yFiles npm module in our Developer’s Guide. A convenient way of getting access to yFiles is to use the yFiles Dev Suite.

Project Setup

  1. Installation

    In addition to yFiles, the Organization Chart component requires React to be installed in your project. If you want to start your project from scratch, we recommend using vite:

    npm create vite@latest my-orgchart-app -- --template react-ts

    Add the yFiles dependency:

    npm install <yFiles package path>/lib-dev/yfiles-26.0.0+dev.tgz
    Sample package.json dependencies The resulting package.json dependencies should resemble the following:
       "dependencies": {
         "react": "^18.2.0",
         "react-dom": "^18.2.0",
         "yfiles": "./lib-dev/yfiles-26.0.0.tgz"

    Now, the component itself can be installed:

    npm install @yworks/react-yfiles-orgchart
  2. License

    Be sure to invoke the registerLicense function before using the Organization Chart React component. When evaluating yFiles, the license JSON file is found in the lib/ folder of the yFiles for HTML evaluation package. For licensed users, the license data is provided separately.

    License registration

    Import or paste your license data and register the license, e.g. in App.tsx:

    import yFilesLicense from './license.json'
  3. Stylesheet

    Make sure to import the CSS stylesheet as well:

    import '@yworks/react-yfiles-orgchart/dist/index.css'
  4. Usage

    You are now all set to utilize the Organization Chart component with your data! See a basic example App.tsx below:

    import { 
    } from '@yworks/react-yfiles-orgchart'
    import '@yworks/react-yfiles-orgchart/dist/index.css'
    import yFilesLicense from './license.json'
    const data = [
      { id: 0, name: 'Eric Joplin', subordinates: [1, 2] },
      { id: 1, name: 'Amy Kain' },
      { id: 2, name: 'David Kerry' }
    ] satisfies CustomOrgChartData<{name: string}>
    function App() {
      return <OrgChart data={data}></OrgChart>
    export default App

    Note: By default, the OrgChart component adjusts its size to match the size of its parent element. Therefore, it is necessary to set the dimensions of the containing element or apply styling directly to the OrgChart component. This can be achieved by defining a CSS class or applying inline styles.
