d3 Extended is compatible with d3 v4. If you are looking for the v3 compatible module you can find it on the v3 branch.

This module extends d3-selection with helpful functions which are similar to the jQuery API. If you want to get to know more about this project, feel free to read the blog post: Replacing jQuery with d3.

You can find the docs on the d3 Extended website



npm install --save d3-extended

git clone

git clone


ES6 modules

import * as d3Selection from 'd3-selection';
import 'd3-extended'; // d3Selection is now extended


const d3Selection = require('d3-selection');
require('d3-extended'); // d3Selection is now extended


You can use the compressed or uncompressed version. To use the plugin, include it after d3-selection in your HTML:

<script src=""></script>
<script src="path/to/d3-extended.js"></script>
  // d3 is now extended


To build d3-extended run npm run build. This will create d3-extended.js and a minified version in the build folder.


To run tests use npm test. Note: The tests require that you have phantomjs installed globally. If you see errors, try npm install -g phantomjs before running the tests.
