Intro to JS Graphing Technologies

I like graphs which just beg visual interaction. There are a lot of good JavaScript graph libraries out there. Here I will try to explore some.

First let's look at some of the technologies I'm currently wading through:


"Graph theory (a.k.a. network) library for analysis and visualisation"

Example: Tokyo railways


Graphlib is a JavaScript library for creating and modifying directed and undirected graphs. In addition to a core graph API, it also comes with implementations for many common graph algorithms.


Dagre is a JavaScript library that makes it easy to lay out directed graphs on the client-side.
