Installation

The easiest way to get the latest version of React Flow is to install it via npm, yarn or pnpm:

npm install reactflow

Quickstart

This is only a very basic usage example of React Flow. To see everything that is possible with the library, please refer to the website for guides, examples and the full API reference.

import { useCallback } from 'react';
import ReactFlow, {
  MiniMap,
  Controls,
  Background,
  useNodesState,
  useEdgesState,
  addEdge,
} from 'reactflow';

import 'reactflow/dist/style.css';

const initialNodes = [
  { id: '1', position: { x: 0, y: 0 }, data: { label: '1' } },
  { id: '2', position: { x: 0, y: 100 }, data: { label: '2' } },
];

const initialEdges = [{ id: 'e1-2', source: '1', target: '2' }];

function Flow() {
  const [nodes, setNodes, onNodesChange] = useNodesState(initialNodes);
  const [edges, setEdges, onEdgesChange] = useEdgesState(initialEdges);

  const onConnect = useCallback((params) => setEdges((eds) => addEdge(params, eds)), [setEdges]);

  return (
    <ReactFlow
      nodes={nodes}
      edges={edges}
      onNodesChange={onNodesChange}
      onEdgesChange={onEdgesChange}
      onConnect={onConnect}
    >
      <MiniMap />
      <Controls />
      <Background />
    </ReactFlow>
  );
}

export default Flow;

Development

Before you can start developing please make sure that you have pnpm installed (npm i -g pnpm). Then install the dependencies using pnpm: pnpm install.

Run pnpm build once and then you can use pnpm dev for local development.

Testing

Testing is done with cypress. You can find the tests in the examples/cypress folder. In order to run the tests do:

pnpm test

Maintainers

React Flow is the full-time project of Moritz and Christopher of webkid, based in Berlin. If you need help or want to talk to us about a collaboration, reach out through our contact form or by joining the React Flow Discord Server.

Any support you provide goes directly towards the development and maintenance of React Flow, allowing us to continue to operate as an independent company, working on what we think is best for React Flow as an open-source library.

Credits

React Flow was initially developed for datablocks, a graph-based editor for transforming, analyzing and visualizing data in the browser. Under the hood, React Flow depends on these great libraries:

  • d3-zoom - used for zoom, pan and drag interactions with the graph canvas
  • d3-drag - used for making the nodes draggable
  • zustand - internal state management
