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 DataStax DSE Graph. They also work with any browser, device or server, leaving you free to choose the stack that works best for you.

DataStax DSE Graph Visualization FAQ

What is DataStax DSE Graph?

DataStax Enterprise Graph is a highly scalable graph database designed for enterprise cloud applications requiring a high performance back-end capable of handling very large volumes of complex and evolving graph data.

It makes use of Apache CassandraTM and Apache TinkerPopTM and is based on the open source Titan graph database.

It also delivers continuous uptime and predictable performance.

How do I visualize DataStax DSE Graph data?

DataStax DSE Graph doesn’t have a built-in visualization tool. Instead, their documentation suggests using open-source libraries like d3.

These libraries are great for generic data visualization components, but come with a steep learning curve and lack the performance and pre-built visual graph analysis functionality most graph application developers require.

If you need a fast way to build custom and powerful graph applications, you need a dedicated connected data visualization technology 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.

What is KronoGraph?

KronoGraph is our SDK for building interactive timeline applications. It comes with both plain JavaScript and React APIs.

The timelines built with KronoGraph reveal how events unfold over time, including heatmap views, individual event views, and intelligence data aggregation.

How do the visualization toolkits connect to DataStax DSE Graph?

The toolkits are front-end JavaScript components, so you choose how to connect them to DataStax DSE Graph – via HTTP calls or WebSockets.

Our tutorial shows the WebSocket approach. In this scenario, the visualization files are hosted on a web server and presented to users in the web browser. By interacting with nodes and links in their visualization chart, users raise queries to the DSE Graph database. The data is then returned to the browser as a JSON object.
