    Please check the live environment.
    You will find there basic usage as well as detailed examples showing possible rendering customizations.

    🎨 Features

    The bpmn-visualization is in early development stage and is subject to change prior to the 1.0.0 release.

    Already available features:

    Planned features:

    • Library extension points

    🌏 Browsers Support

    We do our best to support recent versions of major browsers

    Chrome Chrome Firefox Firefox Safari Safari Edge Edge
    ✔️ ✔️ ✔️ ✔️


    • Internet Explorer and Legacy Edge will never be supported.
    • Chromium based browsers should work (automatic tests are run with Chromium canary releases). In particular, the following browsers are known working with bpmn-visualization@0.23.0:
      • Brave 1.36.119
      • Chromium 100.0.4863.0
      • Opera 85.0.4341.18
    • The library may work with the other browsers. They must at least support ES6.

    ♻️ Usage

    The library is available from NPM.
    We support various module formats such as:

    • IIFE: dist/bpmn-visualization.js
    • ESM: dist/bpmn-visualization.esm.js
    • CommonJS: dist/bpmn-visualization.cjs.js

    📌 Project usage

    • Install the dependency in your package.json file:
    npm i bpmn-visualization
    import { BpmnVisualization } from 'bpmn-visualization';
    let bpmnContent; // your BPMN 2.0 XML content
    // initialize BpmnVisualization and load the diagram
    // 'bpmn-container' is the id of the HTMLElement that renders the BPMN Diagram
    const bpmnVisualization = new BpmnVisualization({ container: 'bpmn-container' });

    You can set the BPMN content using one of the following ways:

    • Copy/Paste directly the XML content in a variable
    • Load it from an url, like this example
    • Load from your computer, like the demo example

    📜 TypeScript Support

    bpmn-visualization provides type definitions, so the integration should work out of the box in TypeScript projects.

    Depending on the build system used by the TypeScript project, it may get the following type errors

    • error TS2688: Cannot find type definition file for 'typed-mxgraph'
    • error TS7016: Could not find a declaration file for module 'mxgraph'

    In this case,

    • Declare the typed-mxgraph types in the tsconfig.json as in the following (see the typeRoots documentation for more explanations) 👇
      "compilerOptions": {
        "typeRoots": [

    Alternatively, you can set skipLibCheck to true in the tsconfig.json file, but this limits the definition checks. For more details, see the skipLibCheck documentation.

    Advanced users that want to extend the mxGraph integration must add typed-mxgraph to typeRoots.

    For more details, see the TypeScript projects in the bpmn-visualization-examples repository.

    💠 Browser usage

    • In the HTML page:
      • Load bpmn-visualization (replace {version} by the recent version)
      • Define the container that displays the BPMN diagram, here bpmn-container
        <script src="{version}/dist/bpmn-visualization.min.js"></script>
        <div id="bpmn-container"></div>
    • Put this Javascript snippet within the HTML page
        let bpmnContent; // your BPMN 2.0 XML content
        // initialize BpmnVisualization and load the diagram
        const bpmnVisualization = new bpmnvisu.BpmnVisualization({ container: 'bpmn-container'});
