GraphView

Flutter GraphView is used to display data in graph structures. It can display Tree layout and Directed graph.

The library is designed to support different graph layouts and currently works excellent with small graphs.

You can have a look at the flutter web implementation here:

Layouts

Tree

Uses Walker's algorithm with Buchheim's runtime improvements (BuchheimWalkerAlgorithm class). Supports different orientations. All you have to do is using the BuchheimWalkerConfiguration.orientation with either ORIENTATION_LEFT_RIGHT, ORIENTATION_RIGHT_LEFT, ORIENTATION_TOP_BOTTOM and
ORIENTATION_BOTTOM_TOP (default). Furthermore parameters like sibling-, level-, subtree separation can be set.

Useful for: Family Tree, Hierarchy View, Flutter Widget Tree,

Directed graph

Directed graph drawing by simulating attraction/repulsion forces. For this the algorithm by Fruchterman and Reingold (FruchtermanReingoldAlgorithm class) was implemented.

Useful for: Social network, Mind Map, Cluster, Graphs, Intercity Road Network,

Usage

Currently GraphView must be used together with a Zoom Engine like InteractiveViewer. To change the zoom values just use the different attributes described in the InteractiveViewer class.

To create a graph, we need to instantiate the Graph class. Then we need to pass the layout and also optional the edge renderer.

void main() {
  runApp(MyApp());
}

class MyApp extends StatelessWidget {
  @override
  Widget build(BuildContext context) => MaterialApp(
        home: GraphViewPage(),
      );
}


class GraphViewPage extends StatefulWidget {
  @override
  _GraphViewPageState createState() => _GraphViewPageState();
}

class _GraphViewPageState extends State<GraphViewPage> {
  @override
  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return Scaffold(
        body: Column(
          mainAxisSize: MainAxisSize.max,
          children: [
            Wrap(
              children: [
                Container(

                  child: TextFormField(
                    initialValue: builder.siblingSeparation.toString(),
                    decoration: InputDecoration(labelText: "Sibling Sepration"),
                    onChanged: (text) {
                      builder.siblingSeparation = int.tryParse(text) ?? 100;
                      this.setState(() {});

    graph.addEdge(node11, node12);

    builder
      ..siblingSeparation = (100)
      ..levelSeparation = (150)
      ..subtreeSeparation = (150)
      ..orientation = (BuchheimWalkerConfiguration.ORIENTATION_TOP_BOTTOM);
  }
}

Using any widget inside the Node

You can use any widget inside the node:

Node node = Node(getNodeText);

getNodeText() {
    return Container(
        padding: EdgeInsets.all(16),
        decoration: BoxDecoration(
          borderRadius: BorderRadius.circular(4),
          boxShadow: [
            BoxShadow(color: Colors.blue[100], spreadRadius: 1),
          ],
        ),
        child: Text("Node ${n++}"));
  }

Inspirations

This library is basically a dart representation of the excellent Android Library GraphView by Team-Blox

I would like to thank them for open sourcing their code for which reason I was able to port their code to dart and use for flutter.

Future Works

[] Add nodeOnTap
[] Add Layered Graph (PRs are welcome)
[] Use a builder pattern to draw items on demand.
