What is G6

G6 is a graph visualization engine, which provides a set of basic mechanisms, including rendering, layout, analysis, interaction, animation, and other auxiliary tools. G6 aims to simplify the relationships, and help people to obtain the insight of relational data.

Developers are able to build graph visualization analysis applications or graph visualization modeling applications easily.

Powerful Animation and Interactions

Powerful Layouts


  • Abundant Built-in Items: Nodes and edges with free configurations;
  • Steerable Interactions: More than 10 basic interaction behaviors ;
  • Powerful Layout: More than 10 layout algorithms;
  • Convenient Components: Outstanding ability and performance;
  • Friendly User Experience: Complete documents for different levels of user requirements. TypeScript supported.

G6 concentrates on the principle of 'good by default'. In addition, the custom mechanism of the item, interation behavior, and layout satisfies the customazation requirements.

Abundant Built-in Items


$ npm install @antv/g6


import G6 from '@antv/g6';

const data = { nodes: [ { id: 'node1', label: 'Circle1', x: 150, y: 150, }, { id: 'node2', label: 'Circle2', x: 400, y: 150, }, ], edges: [ { source: 'node1', target: 'node2', }, ], };

const graph = new G6.Graph({ container: 'container', width: 500, height: 500, defaultNode: { type: 'circle', size: [100], color: '#5B8FF9', style: { fill: '#9EC9FF', lineWidth: 3, }, labelCfg: { style: { fill: '#fff', fontSize: 20, }, }, }, defaultEdge: { style: { stroke: '#e2e2e2', }, }, });; graph.render();

$ npm install

lerna bootstrap for multiple packages

$ npm run bootstrap

build the packages

$ npm run build:all

if you wanna watch one of the packages, e.g. packages/core

$ cd ./packages/core $ npm run watch

run test case

$ npm test

run test case in watch mode

npm test -- --watch ./tests/unit/algorithm/find-path-spec DEBUG_MODE=1 npm test -- --watch ./tests/unit/algorithm/find-path-spec


React project integration

For React project integration, we have an independent product recommendation: Graphin, which is a toolkit based on G6 and React, that focuses on relational visual analysis. It's simple, efficient, out of the box.

At present, Graphin has good practices in business graph analysis projects. For details, see 《Who uses Graphin》
