Product update: 3 ways to style & declutter graph visualizations

With every version of our KeyLines and ReGraph graph visualization toolkits, we aim to share new features that your users will love working with. Our latest release is no exception.

You can now apply advanced node customization to your open combos, and add powerful, interactive glyphs too. We’ve also introduced an intuitive way to aggregate multiple links and keep charts clutter free.

Customize open combos

There’s no need to compromise on the look and feel of your graph visualizations – open combos now benefit from near-limitless customization options. Whether you want to add multiple labels, customize label positions or style them to match the rest of your app, you can bring your consistent product design vision to life.

With near-infinite customizability, open combos can now match the style of other nodes

To demonstrate these style updates, you’ll find a new KeyLines Cloud Security demo and ReGraph showcase on the SDK sites.

Add glyphs to open combos

Glyphs are a powerful and versatile design element – position them where you like and use them as decoration, a source of property information, or even as an interactive control with customizable actions. They’re a popular choice for adding value to nodes and closed combos: now you can style open combos with them too.

To showcase some of the many ways glyphs can be used to powerful effect on open combos, check out the newly-revamped Social Media Analysis demo on the KeyLines SDK.

Clutter-free visualizations with aggregated links

Combos are an effective way to group related nodes in busy charts. New aggregated links apply the same logic to the connections between nodes and combos.

If a pair of chart items have multiple links between them, you can end up with masses of connection loops that clutter the chart and make it look messy. By aggregating those links, you see a cleaner visualization with the details of each underlying link still available on demand. Style them with glyphs to summarize the number of links inside, and customize them to match the rest of your chart items.

Aggregate some or all of the links between two nodes and add clarity to your chart

To see examples in a supply chain scenario, head to the KeyLines Aggregating Links demo, or the ReGraph Basic Link Aggregation story.
