About our toolkits

Our toolkits – KeyLines, ReGraph and KronoGraph – are software development kits (SDKs) for graph and timeline visualization.

They make it easy to create powerful interactive visualization tools that bring your data to life. These tools can then be rolled into your existing workflows and products, helping your users to explore and understand their data.

Our SDKs are 100% database agnostic, but integrate seamlessly with Azure Cosmos DB. They also work with any browser, device or server, leaving you free to choose the stack that works best for you.

Building timeline and graph visualization tools for Azure Cosmos DB

Whatever your stack, we have an integration tutorial to get you started.

Learn how to create graph and timeline visualization applications that empower users to see, explore and understand the data in their Azure Cosmos DB.

Azure Cosmos DB Visualization FAQ

What is Azure Cosmos DB?

It’s Microsoft’s globally distributed, NoSQL and relational database for building high performance, planet-scale applications. Specifically optimized for scale, it delivers single-digit millisecond response times, automatic scalability and guaranteed speed. It’s also a fully managed database, so you don’t need to worry about patching, updates, back-ups or the other time-consuming database management tasks.

There’s a special Azure Cosmos DB for Apache Gremlin graph database service for running applications that work with densely connected datasets – sometimes called ‘graph data’. There’s also support for popular database APIs including NoSQL, MongoDB, PostreSQL, Cassandra and Table, so you can choose whichever ecosystem you prefer.

How do I visualize Azure Cosmos DB data?

You need a third-party visualization tool like KeyLines, ReGraph and KronoGraph.

What is KeyLines?

KeyLines is our JavaScript software development toolkit (SDK) for graph visualization. It makes it quick and easy for JavaScript developers to build custom, powerful and interactive graph visualization tools. These can be rolled into your existing products and shipped to unlimited end-users.

What is ReGraph?

ReGraph is our React SDK for graph visualization. It offers the same performance, scalability and end-user functionality as KeyLines, but is specifically designed for React developers.

Every aspect of the SDK is optimized to feel as ‘React-native’ for the developer as possible, including fully-reactive components, state and data flow management and JSX-coded elements with clear syntax.

How do the visualizations toolkits connect to Azure Cosmos DB?

The toolkits are front-end JavaScript components, so you choose how to connect them. Azure Cosmos DB for Apache Gremlin is the most commonly-used approach. If you’re using one of the other supported APIs, you just need to make sure that the data is converted into our custom JSON format.

Our tutorials demonstrate some of these options, but let us know if your requirements aren’t covered.
