Introducing KeyLines 3.1 – built to give you greater control, more flexibility and a faster developer experience.
Adding controls to the hierarchy layout
Many datasets include some kind of hierarchy or dependency. In this release, we have added the ability to override the automatic layout so you can force a node to a particular vertical layer.
This means you can force nodes with shared attributes into layers, flowing from top to bottom, giving a clearer presentation:
See our new Hierarchy demo for more details.
- Labels: Frequently you will want to use custom graphics for your nodes; now you can invoke ‘text centre’ for the label as an alternative to it being placed under the node.
- Glyphs: KeyLines’ Glyph sizes are now configurable – so the most important ones can be appropriately sized.
- Auto-ellipsis: We’ve made it simpler for you to automatically truncate long labels in a clean and predictable way.
Get started faster with ReactJS
We are delighted to announce our new documentation and demo showing how easy it is to integrate KeyLines into your ReactJS app. See the SDK site for more details.
More and more of your users are adopting 4k monitors and retina screens. To give them the best experience possible, we have released our fixed assets in beautiful better-than-HD resolution.
New Combos demo
You asked us for more demos to help you make better use of Combos, our node grouping feature. So our new Ransomware demo lets you explore the spread of Ransomware over time and regions, showing how to use KeyLines combos with the time bar visualization component:
KeyLines 3.1 also includes other bug fixes, enhancements and changes. Check out the Change Log (SDK > Documentation > Change log) for details.
