JavaScript library used to visualize network graphs in the browser

Tools – Code

Alexis Jacomy, Guillaume Plique

sigma.js is a JavaScript library used to visualize network graphs directly in a web browser.

This library was designed to leverage WebGL's performance in order to enable interactive display and exploration of very large graphs having lots of nodes and edges. sigma.js thus became an essential tool for visual network analysis in the browser.

sigma.js is currently used in many web applications (such as the lab's own web crawler Hyphe) and its second version is being developed right now.
