cytoscape-mapbox-gl

Mapbox GL plugin for Cytoscape

Demo

Screenshot

Compatible with Mapbox GL v1.13 or earlier. Compatibility with v2 is not guaranteed due to license change. Compatibility with MapLibre fork is under consideration.

Compatible with Cytoscape plugins:

Incompatible with Cytoscape plugins:

  • cytoscape-panzoom
    • disable with cy.panzoom('destroy') after enabling cy.mapboxgl(...)
    • add map navigation control
    • enable with cy.panzoom() after calling cyMap.destroy()

Install

npm install mapbox-gl-js cytoscape-mapbox-gl

or

<script src="https://api.mapbox.com/mapbox-gl-js/v1.13.0/mapbox-gl.js"></script>
<link href="https://api.mapbox.com/mapbox-gl-js/v1.13.0/mapbox-gl.css" rel="stylesheet">
<script src="https://unpkg.com/cytoscape-mapbox-gl@1.2.0/dist/cytoscape-mapbox-gl.min.js"></script>

Usage

The plugin exposes a single function, which should be used to register the plugin to Cytoscape.js.

import cytoscape from 'cytoscape';
import cytoscapeMapboxgl from 'cytoscape-mapbox-gl';

cytoscape.use(cytoscapeMapboxgl);

Plain HTML/JS has the extension registered for you automatically.

API

export interface MapboxglHandlerOptions {
  getPosition: (node: cytoscape.NodeSingular) => mapboxgl.LngLatLike;
  setPosition?: (node: cytoscape.NodeSingular, lngLat: mapboxgl.LngLat) => void;
  animate?: boolean;
  animationDuration?: number;
}

const cyMap = cy.mapboxgl(mapboxOptions: mapboxgl.MapboxOptions, options: MapboxglHandlerOptions);
  • mapboxglOptions - see Mapbox GL JS docs for detailed documentation
  • options
    • getPosition - function, should return node position, required
    • setPosition - function, should save the node position
    • animate - animate the transition between graph and map mode
    • animateDuration - animation duration for the transition between graph and map mode

If no setPosition option is provided, it's important to disable node dragging with Cytoscape methods, e.g. with cy.autoungrabify(true).

If node dragging is kept enabled and no setPosition option is provided, or setPosition returns without saving, node position is reverted back to the original position after node dragging is finished. This behavior can be also used for cancelling.

Basic

cy.autoungrabify(true); // disable node dragging
const cyMap = cy.mapboxgl(..., {
  getPosition: (node) => {
    return [node.data('lng'), node.data('lat')];
  }
});

Node dragging enabled

const cyMap = cy.mapboxgl(..., {
  getPosition: (node) => {
    return [node.data('lng'), node.data('lat')];
  },
  setPosition: (node, lngLat) => {
    node.data('lng', lngLat.lng);
    node.data('lat', lngLat.lat);
  }
});

Use raster basemap layer

const cyMap = cy.mapboxgl({
  style: {
    'version': 8,
    'sources': {
      'raster-tiles': {
        'type': 'raster',
        'tiles': ['https://tile.openstreetmap.org/{z}/{x}/{y}.png'],
        'tileSize': 256,
        'attribution': '&copy; <a href="https://www.openstreetmap.org/copyright">OpenStreetMap</a> contributors'
      }
    },
    'layers': [
      {
        'id': 'raster-tiles',
        'type': 'raster',
        'source': 'raster-tiles',
        'minzoom': 0,
        'maxzoom': 19
      }
    ]
  }
}, ...);

OpenStreetMap tiles are not recommended for heavy use. See OpenStreetMap Tile Usage Policy for details. See Tile servers at OpenStreetMap wiki for possible alternatives, or consider commercial alternatives such as Mapbox, Maptiler, or running your own tile server.

Use Mapbox vector basemap layer

const cyMap = cy.mapboxgl({
  accessToken: '...',
  style: 'mapbox://styles/mapbox/streets-v11'
}, ...);

This requires Mapbox access token.

Use Maptiler vector basemap layer

const cyMap = cy.mapboxgl({
  style: 'https://api.maptiler.com/maps/basic/style.json?key=...'
}, ...);

This requires Maptiler access token.

Fit map to nodes

cyMap.fit(nodes = this.cy.nodes(), options)
  • nodes - cytoscape.NodeCollection, the collection to fit to (default all nodes)
  • options - mapboxgl.FitBoundsOptions, see Mapbox GL JS docs for detailed documentation

Access Mapbox GL instance

cyMap.map

See Mapbox GL JS docs for detailed documentation.

Add map navigation control

cyMap.map.addControl(new mapboxgl.NavigationControl(), 'top-left');

Destroy

cy.autoungrabify(false); // enable node dragging, if node dragging was disabled earlier with `cy.autoungrabify(true)`
cyMap.destroy();
