JavaScript GEXF Viewer for Gephi

Released under MIT License

Known Issues

The issue below is the source of 90% of support emails I receive, please read carefully

Gexf-JS won't work if launched from your local drive (with a file:/// URI scheme) because AJAX is disabled by default on local URIs. This is a known security limitation, part of the Cross-Origin Resource Sharing security model, and there are 2 known workarounds:

  1. Change the security settings of your browser - check for details.

  2. Use a server (upload it or use a local server). If you have Python on your computer, the simplest is to launch a SimpleHTTPServer with the Command Line:

    $ cd /path/to/gexf-js $ python -m SimpleHTTPServer

Firefox used to support AJAX from local files, but it is now disabled as of version 68 - unless you set security.fileuri.strict_origin_policy to false

Newest features

Hybrid directed/undirected graphs are now supported, and arrows can be shown.

Gexf-JS now speaks 9 languages: Dutch, English, French, Finnish, German, Greek, Italian, Spanish, and Turkish!

How to use ?

  1. Export your graph from Gephi as a GEXF file
  2. Put it in the gexf-js directory
  3. Modify config.js to point to your GEXF File and tune the interface.

You can view more Gexf files by pointing your browser to index.html#Filename.gexf


Gexf-JS uses the canvas element, which might cause compatibility issues with older browsers.

It has been tested with the latest Chrome, Firefox and Internet Explorer versions.

It doesn't work with Internet Explorer 8 or older.
