We’re excited to announce KeyLines 3.4 – the latest version of our network visualization toolkit. It includes new features and improvements that will accelerate the developer and analyst experience.

Introducing Donuts 🍩

Graphs are great for quickly getting a sense of network structure, but sometimes you need to convey data values quickly too. KeyLines new donuts feature allows you to display relative data values as node borders:

Understand data volumes at a glance using KeyLines donuts

These colorful new additions provide a great ‘at a glance’ understanding of data volumes, without overloading the chart with glyphs or labels.

Donuts are entirely customizable – you can select how many segments you want, choose color palettes, set segment and border widths, add tooltips and more.

TypeScript Support

We know many of you use TypeScript code, so we’ve added support for this. It means you can take advantage of key features including strong typing, context sensitive documentation and IntelliSense.

Angular Support

We’re pleased to announce support for the latest Angular platform with our Angular component.
