yFiles React Supply Chain Component

NPM version

Welcome playground

Traditionally associated with manufacturing processes, supply chain management is equally important for the provision of any good or service, whether physical, face-to-face, or purely digital. Managing a supply chain requires visualizing and analyzing all of the components, resources and process in a network. Comprehensively diagramming a supply network enables teams to identify inefficiencies and optimize the overall supply chain.

Our powerful and versatile React component based on the yFiles library, allows you to seamlessly incorporate dynamic and interactive supply chain diagrams into your applications. This enhances the user experience and facilitates an intuitive exploration of complex manufacturing processes.

Getting Started


To use the Supply Chain 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 Supply Chain 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-supply-chain-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-supply-chain
  2. License

    Be sure to invoke the registerLicense function before using the Supply Chain 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-supply-chain/dist/index.css'
  4. Usage

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

    import {
    } from '@yworks/react-yfiles-supply-chain'             
    import '@yworks/react-yfiles-supply-chain/dist/index.css'   
    import yFilesLicense from './license.json'
    const data = {
      items: [
        { name: 'Copper-Ore', id: 1, parentId: 3 },
        { name: 'Copper-Plate', id: 2, parentId: 4 },
        { name: 'Resource', id: 3 },
        { name: 'Material', id: 4 }
      connections: [{ sourceId: 1, targetId: 2 }]
    function App() {
      return <SupplyChain data={data}></SupplyChain>
    export default App

    Note: By default, the SupplyChain 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 SupplyChain component. This can be achieved by defining a CSS class or applying inline styles.

The supply chain component provides versatile features that can be adjusted to specific use cases or used with the provided default features.

Custom node visualization

Custom node visualization

The renderItem and renderGroup property allow providing custom React components for the node visualization. Try the API in the playground.

Custom connection visualization

Custom connection visualization

With the connectionStyleProvider, the connection visualization may be adjusted to the use-case. Additionally, the connectionLabelProvider may be used to display related information directly on the connection. Try the API in the playground.

Grouping and folding

Grouping and folding

The component automatically creates nested nodes if the item contains a parentId property. The nested nodes can be collapsed/expanded interactively. Try the API in the playground.

Heat mapping

Heat mapping

The heatMapping function allows to provide a "heat" value for items and connections that visualizes an additional information layer in the component.

Graph search

Graph search

The versatile graph search helps to find items in larger supply chains. Try it in the playground.

Custom tooltips

Custom Tooltips

The renderTooltip property can be used to provide use-case specific React components as tooltips. Try the API in the playground.

Graph overview

Graph overview

The graph overview provides a quick and easy way to navigate larger graph structures. Try it in the playground.

Context menu

Context menu

The context menu can be populated with custom components and actions. Try it in the playground.
