Product updates: a new angle on combos

Our node grouping and combining feature (combos for short) is one of the most used tools in our graph visualization SDKs.

With our last KeyLines and ReGraph releases of 2020, you can now create eye-catching and space-saving rectangular combos.

Use rectangular combos in busy charts to save space

The latest toolkit updates also include more compact combos, a revised KeyLines Neo4j tutorial, and ReGraph support for the latest version of React.

Rectangular combos are here

They don’t just look good: rectangular combos are the best choice when space for nodes and links is tight. Combined with the new grid arrange option, you can make efficient use of chart real estate and place nested combos into neat blocks. And you can still apply custom styling to achieve the look and feel you want.

Rectangular combos provide a clear, uncluttered view

Combined with our sequential layout and curved links, users can create slick and stylish visualizations that provide clarity.

To help you get started with rectangular combos, we’ve updated the KeyLines SDK’s Combos Basics demo and added a new Arranging IT Networks demo. In ReGraph you’ll find a brand new Rectangular Combos story.

Compact circular combos

Chart items inside rectangular combos use just the right amount of padding so as not to waste valuable chart space. We’ve applied this to circular combos too.

The result is a much tighter view that focuses on the items that matter and reduces whitespace. It’s particularly effective when there’s a small number of nodes in a combo, or you have multiple nested combos but only one contains chart items.

Before, padding could sometimes take up more chart space than was necessary. Now padding is kept to a minimum, making chart items and labels more prominent.
