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 complex 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 Layouts

Powerful Animation and Interactions


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

Abundant Built-in Items


$ npm install @antv/g6


// The source data
const data = {
  // The array of nodes
  nodes: [
      id: 'node1',
      x: 100,
      y: 200,
      id: 'node2',
      x: 300,
      y: 200,
  // The array of edges
  edges: [
    // An edge links from node1 to node2
      source: 'node1',
      target: 'node2',

// Instantiate the Graph
const graph = new G6.Graph({
  container: 'mountNode', // The container id or HTML node of the graph canvas.
  // The width and the height of graph canvas
  width: 800,
  height: 500,
// Load the data;
// Render the graph
