Css style and canvas style

SVG css classes:

  • .node: nodes symbol
  • .link: link line
  • .node-label: nodes names
  • .node .selected: node selected
  • .link .selected link selected
  • node pinned: node pinned

To use this css styles in canvas we create 'ghosts' svg elements to pick up values from computed css properties. If you want, you can stylize the canvas elements directly, setting: options.canvasStyles, but these styles will not be applied to the svg graph.

see: src/canvasStyles.js
