Interactive and configurable graphs with react and d3 effortlessly

react-d3-graph gif sample


Here a live playground page where you can interactively config your own graph, and generate a ready to use configuration! :sunglasses:

You can also load different datasets and configurations via URL query parameter, here are the links:

Do you want to visualize your own data set on the live sandbox? Just submit a PR! You're welcome 😁

Usage sample

Graph component is the main component for react-d3-graph components, its interface allows its user to build the graph once the user provides the data, configuration (optional) and callback interactions (also optional). The code for the live example can be consulted here.

import { Graph } from 'react-d3-graph';

// graph payload (with minimalist structure)
const data = {
    nodes: [{ id: 'Harry' }, { id: 'Sally' }, { id: 'Alice' }],
    links: [{ source: 'Harry', target: 'Sally' }, { source: 'Harry', target: 'Alice' }]

// the graph configuration, you only need to pass down properties
// that you want to override, otherwise default ones will be used
const myConfig = {
    nodeHighlightBehavior: true,
    node: {
        color: 'lightgreen',
        size: 120,
        highlightStrokeColor: 'blue'
    link: {
        highlightColor: 'lightblue'

// graph event callbacks
const onClickGraph = function() {
    window.alert(`Clicked the graph background`);

const onClickNode = function(nodeId) {
    window.alert(`Clicked node ${nodeId}`);

const onRightClickNode = function(event, nodeId) {
    window.alert(`Right clicked node ${nodeId}`);

const onMouseOverNode = function(nodeId) {
    window.alert(`Mouse over node ${nodeId}`);

const onMouseOutNode = function(nodeId) {
    window.alert(`Mouse out node ${nodeId}`);

const onClickLink = function(source, target) {
    window.alert(`Clicked link between ${source} and ${target}`);

const onRightClickLink = function(event, source, target) {
    window.alert(`Right clicked link between ${source} and ${target}`);

const onMouseOverLink = function(source, target) {
    window.alert(`Mouse over in link between ${source} and ${target}`);

const onMouseOutLink = function(source, target) {
    window.alert(`Mouse out link between ${source} and ${target}`);

    id="graph-id" // id is mandatory, if no id is defined rd3g will throw an error
