yFiles is the industry-leading software library for visualizing, editing and analyzing graphs. The Graph Visualisation SDK is available for 5 major platforms and technologies: HTML, JavaFX, Java (Swing), WinForms, and WPF.
At yWorks, we deliver great software. We also provide extensive documentation. But because our products are so powerful and versatile, most users will have questions at some point.
That’s what our awesome support is for! Customers and evaluators are welcome to reach out to our core developers.
We provide extensive, sophisticated resources for working with our SDK and to solving problems on your own.
Each member of the yFiles product family comes with a documentation that bundles three resources: the Developer’s Guide, the API documentation, and the Knowledge Base. A centralized search lets you immediately find the answer to your question. The documentation is part of the yFiles product package, and it’s also available in an online version.
The Developer’s Guide describes the library’s concepts and explains how functionality is provided by the classes and interfaces. You’ll also learn about the graph layout algorithms and their
options and settings.
The detailed API documentation for the classes and interfaces of the diagramming library provides clear help for working with yFiles. It is available as HTML pages, and can also be integrated directly into many IDEs.
The yWorks Knowledge Base contains short, product-specific technical articles written by our core engineers that answer frequently asked questions.
Explore over 100 interactive demos that showcase some of the yFiles features and use cases. You can run a live version of most demos directly in your browser (created with yFiles for HTML). The source code of all demos can be built onto your own projects. It is part of the yFiles product package and also available at GitHub.
The yWorks YouTube channel features numerous helpful videos about yFiles. Take your first steps with yFiles, explore new features, discover advanced techniques, or get to know different layout options. We regularly add new videos – so give us a follow!
yWorks regularly offers free webinars, geared toward yFiles newcomers as well as expert users. We introduce new features and layouts, demonstrate live coding, share tips for working with the SDK, and show the benefits of graph visualization for various use cases.
You’re also welcome to browse our collection of recorded webinars.
The yWorks blog offers a wide range of articles. Read case studies about how other companies use yFiles, discover advanced graph drawing projects and technical tips

If you ever get stuck, our excellent e-mail support is ready to help! All requests are answered directly by our core developers, because they can assist you most efficiently. Working with a versatile product can sometimes pose a challenge, so don’t hold back if you need advice. That’s what support is for. By the way: Evaluators have access to the customer center, too.
