    #graph {
      width: 500px;
      height: 500px;
      border: 1px solid grey;
    <div id="graph"></div>

    <script src="graphosaurus.min.js"></script>
      // JavaScript will go here

If you open this up in your web browser, you'll see something that looks like this:

Look at that amazing square! Now let's create a graph, a couple nodes, and an edge between the nodes:

var graph = G.graph()

// Create a red node with cartesian coordinates x=0, y=0, z=0
var redNode = G.node([0, 0, 0], {color: "red"});

// You can also use the addTo method to add to the graph
var greenNode = G.node([1, 1, 1], {color: "green"}).addTo(graph);

var edge = G.edge([redNode, greenNode], {color: "blue"});
graph.addEdge(edge);  // or edge.addTo(graph)

// Render the graph in the HTML element with id='graph'

After inserting this JavaScript in the <script> block, you should see this:

While this is a very basic example, I hope I've demonstrated how simple it is to create graphs with Graphosaurus.


  1. Run git clone to clone this repository
  2. Install node, npm, and grunt-cli
  3. Run npm install to install all the build requirements
  4. Run grunt to build Graphosaurus. The resulting compiled JavaScript will be in dist/ and the docs will be in doc/
