yWorks releases version 2.4 of yFiles for HTML!

yWorks continues to invest heavily into its yFiles diagramming libraries. The first new release of the 2021 generation is yFiles for HTML 2.4. Creating and developing new graph visualization applications has never been easier. On the one hand, there are new low-code options around the new yFiles App Generator and on the other hand, hundreds of new TypeScript demos and code samples and the new WebGL 2.0 backend make the creation of high-quality, performant graph visualization apps a snap.


Case Study: Airbus

How Airbus visualizes specific technical dependencies, without building a graph library from scratch.

Case Study: JetBrains

As codebases grow larger, it becomes more and more important to keep an overview - especially for large software companies that work with a large number of developers on their software. Automatic UML and class diagrams can quickly and easily create this overview.

Case Study: Connect Our Kids

Visualizations can be found in places where you would not expect them in the first place. Diagrams can help social workers to find permanent homes for foster children.

yFiles and Neo4j: Custom Visualization Solutions

Neo4j is great for storing and processing large amounts of connected data. For example, in web analytics, where click-paths and custom events get logged, it is easy to get that data into Neo4j. Once the data is in the graph database, complex queries may be executed that help both site administrators and site owners get a good understanding of how their users and visitors use the website or ecommerce store.


‘Game of Thrones’ Relationship Graph

Every year, the Graph Drawing conference organizes a contest which sets the task to visualize predetermined graph data. This year, the data consists of a graph that presents the relationships between 84 characters from the popular TV series ‘Game of Thrones’. Since our yFiles diagramming library is designed to arrange and visualize graph structures, we decided to participate in the contest. The image above shows a preview of our contribution. Read on if you want to find out how we created it or skip to the final result.


Automatic Metro Map Generation

Metro maps are a very important tool when it comes to illustrating routes of a public transport system. The history of metro maps or, more generally, transport maps, goes back to the famous 'Tube Map' created by Harry Beck in 1931 which shows the London Underground. Nowadays they exist for almost every larger urban area, making it easy for passengers to quickly gain an overview over the possible routes and reachable stations. Simply put, metro maps consist of stations or stops which are connected by lines. So we thought that they are a perfect match for the visualization using our yFiles diagramming library. Our goal was to automatically generate maps from data retrieved online and to polish the results using styles similar to the ones found in official maps. As the computation of a new metro map layout is quite CPU intensive, the goal was not to create maps in real time.


Visualizing Neo4j Database Contents Like a Pro!

There are two major use-cases for the visualization of data in graph databases like Neo4j:


SVG, Canvas, WebGL? Visualization options for the web

Ever since we released our commercial graph drawing library for HTML5 and JavaScript/Typescript, we have been working hard to get the best possible performance that is available on the HTML5 platform: Our initial implementation six years ago only supported SVG, because we found it to be the most flexible, most widely available and easy to work with API for us and our customers, who are also developers. At that time (when Internet Explorer 9 was still in wide use), it already was the best performing technology, at least if you wanted to render high-quality, non-trivial, large-scale graphics.


yWorks releases version 2.1 of yFiles for HTML!

The 2.1 release of our graph drawing and network visualization library yFiles for HTML contains a lot of new features that both our existing customers and new customers can benefit from.

ECMAScript 6 features like Promises and iterables are supported and also ECMAScript 6 and TypeScript class declarations.
The class and interface hierarchies have been simplified as well as the implementations for components, built-in styles, and input modes; working with nested/grouped graphs and configuration of layout algorithms has also been simplified.
