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 the full API reference.

import { useCallback } from 'react';
import ReactFlow, {
} from 'reactflow';

import 'reactflow/dist/style.css';

const initialNodes = [
  { id: '1', position: { x: 0, y: 0 }, data: { label: '1' } },
  { id: '2', position: { x: 0, y: 100 }, data: { label: '2' } },

const initialEdges = [{ id: 'e1-2', source: '1', target: '2' }];

function Flow() {
  const [nodes, setNodes, onNodesChange] = useNodesState(initialNodes);
  const [edges, setEdges, onEdgesChange] = useEdgesState(initialEdges);

  const onConnect = useCallback((params) => setEdges((eds) => addEdge(params, eds)), [setEdges]);

  return (
      <MiniMap />
      <Controls />
      <Background />


Before you can start developing please make sure that you have pnpm installed (npm i -g pnpm). Then install the dependencies using pnpm: pnpm install.

For local development, you can use pnpm dev.

Community Packages


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

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


React Flow is MIT licensed.
