Force-Directed Graph
license: gpl-3.0
height: 600
redirect: https://observablehq.com/@d3/d3-force-directed-graph

This simple force-directed graph shows character co-occurence in Les Misérables. A physical simulation of charged particles and springs places related characters in closer proximity, while unrelated characters are farther apart. Layout algorithm inspired by Tim Dwyer and Thomas Jakobsen. Data based on character coappearence in Victor Hugo's Les Misérables, compiled by Donald Knuth.

Compare this display to a force layout with curved links, a force layout with fisheye distortion and a matrix diagram.

Hrm, doesn't seem to work at all with https://d3js.org/d3.v5.min.js but no errors are thrown. Any clues why?

Can anyone help me make a small top level navigation, from this graph? I want to use the d3 for navigation to link to other pages, and would appear above the fold on the landing page.

Hi ,

I am getting error in this part of code :

simulation
.nodes(graph.nodes)
.on('tick', ticked);

error states : "Argument of type 'Node[]' is not assignable to parameter of type 'SimulationNodeDatum[]'.
Type 'Node' has no properties in common with type 'SimulationNodeDatum'."

I am using versions:

"@types/d3": "^4.10.0",
"d3": "^4.10.2"

Can anyone help me with this issue?
