@sdesalas/3d-force-graph v2.0.10

UI component for a 3D force-directed graph using ThreeJS and ngraph.forcelayout3d layout engine

3D Force-Directed Graph


A web component to represent a graph data structure in a 3-dimensional space using a force-directed iterative layout. Uses ThreeJS/WebGL for 3D rendering and either d3-force-3d or anvaka's ngraph for the underlying physics engine.

Quick start

import ForceGraph3D from '3d-force-graph';


var ForceGraph3D = require('3d-force-graph');

or even

<script src="//"></script>


var myGraph = ForceGraph3D(myDOMElement, { width: 500, lineOpacity: 0.5 });
