    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! 😎

    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 😁

    npm install d3@^5.5.0      # if you don't have d3 already

    npm install react-d3-graph

    About react and d3 peer dependencies

    Note that react and d3 are peer-dependencies, this means that the responsability to install them is delegated to the client. This will give you a bigger flexibility on what versions of d3 and react you want to consume, you just need to make sure that you are compliant with the range of versions that react-d3-graph is compatible with. If you install react-d3-graph without first installing d3 and react you might be propmt the following warnings:

    npm WARN react-d3-graph@2.0.1 requires a peer of d3@^5.5.0 but none is installed. You must install peer dependencies yourself. npm WARN react-d3-graph@2.0.1 requires a peer of react@^16.4.1 but none is installed. You must install peer dependencies yourself.

    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 onDoubleClickNode = function(nodeId) {
        window.alert(`Double 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
