Usage

Its an easy to use library to build flow charts or state diagrams in elm.

Basic

1. Import this library

import FlowChart
import FlowChart.Types as FCTypes

2. Define Model

type alias Model =
    { fcModel : FlowChart.Model }

3. Some Initialization

type Msg
    = CanvasMsg FlowChart.Msg

subscriptions : Model -> Sub Msg
subscriptions model =
    Sub.map CanvasMsg (FlowChart.subscriptions model)


init : () -> ( Model, Cmd Msg )
init _ =
    ( { fcModel =
            FlowChart.init
                { nodes =
                    [ createNode "node-0" (FCTypes.Vector2 10 10)
                    , createNode "node-1" (FCTypes.Vector2 100 200)
                    ]
                , position = FCTypes.Vector2 0 0
                , links = []
                , portConfig = FlowChart.defaultPortConfig
                , linkConfig = FlowChart.defaultLinkConfig
                }
                CanvasMsg
      }
    , Cmd.none
    )

{-| Defines how a node should look. Map a string node type to html.
-}
nodeToHtml : FCNode -> Model -> Html FlowChart.Msg
nodeToHtml node model =
    div
        [ A.style "width" "100%"
        , A.style "height" "100%"
        , A.style "background-color" "white"
        ]
        [ text nodeType ]


createNode : String -> FCTypes.Vector2 -> FCTypes.FCNode
createNode id position =
    { position = position
    , id = id
    , dim = FCTypes.Vector2 130 100
    , nodeType = "default"
    , ports =
        [ { id = "port-" ++ id ++ "-0", position = FCTypes.Vector2 0 0.42 }
        ]
    }

FlowChart init takes nodes, position, links and some configs for initial state. See FCTypes to understand types used in the library.

4. Update

update : Msg -> Model -> ( Model, Cmd Msg )
update msg model =
    case msg of
        CanvasMsg cMsg ->
            FlowChart.update flowChartEvent cMsg model

5. View

view : Model -> Html Msg
view model =
    div []
        [ FlowChart.view model
            nodeToHtml
            [ A.style "height" "600px"
            , A.style "width" "85%"
            , A.style "background-color" "lightgrey"
            ]
        ]
