  • panzoom

    Universal pan and zoom library (DOM, SVG, Custom)

    I did a lot of data visualizations and I am big fan of d3. It's very robust software that works in all browsers. We are using d3-zoom for panning and zooming the pan but I am actually looking for an alternative to decrease the size of react flow. Maybe we will use this in the future
