React graph vis

A React component to display beautiful network graphs using vis.js

Show, don't tell: Demo

Make sure to visit visjs.org for more info.

Rendered graphs are scrollable, zoomable, retina ready, dynamic, and switch layout on double click.

A graph rendered by vis js

Due to the imperative nature of vis.js, updating graph properties causes complete redraw of graph and completely porting it to React is a big project itself!

This component takes three vis.js configuration objects as properties:

  • graph: contains two arrays { edges, nodes }
  • options: normal vis.js options as described here
  • events: an object that has event name as keys and their callback as values

Usage

var Graph = require('react-graph-vis');
 
var graph = {
  nodes: [
      {id: 1, label: 'Node 1'},
      {id: 2, label: 'Node 2'},
      {id: 3, label: 'Node 3'},
      {id: 4, label: 'Node 4'},
      {id: 5, label: 'Node 5'}
    ],
  edges: [
      {from: 1, to: 2},
      {from: 1, to: 3},
      {from: 2, to: 4},
      {from: 2, to: 5}
    ]
};
 
var options = {
    layout: {
        hierarchical: true
    },
    edges: {
        color: "#000000"
    }
};
 
var events = {
    select: function(event) {
        var { nodes, edges } = event;
    }
}
 
React.render(<Graph graph={graph} options={options} events={events} />, document.body);
