MxGraph: Clientside visual graphing

Category: Showcase

MXGraph has been released, which shows you how to build interactive visuals simply from your browser:

MxGraph is JGraph in a browser. It uses Javascript, SVG and VML, along with an XML communications protocol to provide an interactive graph visualization toolkit in a standard Internet browser. The demo of MxGraph is a pure client-side implementation, but there is also a version that links to a server and enables many people to view and interact with the same diagrams simultaneously.

Sap Visual Composer requires the Adobe SVG plugin, we went down this route originally, but we realised 1) Adobe are clearly not supporting it and greatly favour flash now and 2) Many IE installations are not able to install the plug-in due to lack of admin rights. The whole idea of mxGraph is that it works with the vanilla IE and FF browsers and doesn’t have a dependency on a plug-in that could disappear at any time and cause IT headaches. SVC is great, don’t get me wrong.
