Getting Started


Add the following in your pubspec.yaml file under dependencies:

  flutter_force_directed_graph: ^1.0.6

Then install it by running flutter pub get in your terminal.


Here’s a basic example on how to use the ForceDirectedGraphWidget and ForceDirectedGraphController.

import 'package:flutter_force_directed_graph/flutter_force_directed_graph.dart';

ForceDirectedGraphController<int> controller = ForceDirectedGraphController();

final fdgWidget = ForceDirectedGraphWidget(
  controller: controller,
  onDraggingStart: (data) {
    print('Dragging started on node $data');
  onDraggingEnd: (data) {
    print('Dragging ended on node $data');
  onDraggingUpdate: (data) {
    print('Dragging updated on node $data');
  nodesBuilder: (context, data) {
    return Container(
      width: 24,
      height: 24,
      alignment: Alignment.center,
      color: Colors.red,
      child: Text('$data'),
  edgesBuilder: (context, a, b, distance) {
    return Container(
      width: distance,
      height: 16,
      color: Colors.blue,
      alignment: Alignment.center,
      child: Text('$a <-> $b'),
