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 JanusGraph data to life. These tools can then be rolled into your own applications for your users to explore.

Our SDKs are 100% database agnostic, but integrate seamlessly with JanusGraph. 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 JanusGraph

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 JanusGraph database.

JanusGraph Visualization FAQ

What is JanusGraph?

JanusGraph is an open source graph database — a successor of the Titan project – built and maintained by the Linux Foundation with contributors from from Expero, Google, GRAKN.AI, Hortonworks, IBM and Amazon.

Like Titan, JanusGraph harnesses the Apache TinkerPopTM stack for scale and flexibility. It’s optimized for storing and querying graphs containing hundreds of billions of vertices and edges distributed across a multi-machine cluster, and works with a range of different persistence, analytic and index engines.

JanusGraph’s performance, reliability and flexibility make it a popular partner to our SDKs, with the technologies integrating seamlessly in an application stack.

How do I visualize JanusGraph data?

Integration between our toolkits and the JanusGraph database using the Gremlin JavaScript client is quick and easy.

Our visualization libraries include a JavaScript component, deployed to your web server, embedded in a webpage and accessed by your users using any modern web browser.

As users interact with visualization component, events are raised – like click, drag or double-click. These then get transformed into a Gremlin graph query, via a jQuery AJAX request. JanusGraph receives the Gremlin query and returns the data as a JSON object. This data is then styled and rendered back in the component.

You can customize the events, how the data is added to the chart and the chart styling, meaning the full user experience and the interface is suited to your users’ needs.

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 JanusGraph?

The toolkits are front-end JavaScript components, so you choose how to connect them to JanusGraph. Most of our examples use the Gremlin driver, but you can use SPARQL or openCypher if you prefer. 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.
