To kick it off, v11.5.0 was released! 🎉 It comes with Auto pan, snappy connections, error handling, the NodeResizer component, and more goodies that I won’t get into here, because there’s already a write-up about the release by Moritz.
Dear Open Source: let’s do a better job of asking for money
It’s common knowledge that many open source projects are underfunded. We think one reason for this is that the open source world is doing a bad job of asking for the money that it deserves. By telling the right organizations exactly why and how we want them to financially support our work, OSS projects can be compensated for more fairly, and result in a healthier open source ecosystem.
Hello again! I am super excited to share the latest improvements of React Flow. The new auto pan features and connection radius makes it way easier to connect nodes and work with bigger flows. On top of that we improved the usability on touch devices.

v11.4.0, design-tool components, an awesome list, and new examples
Hey! We wanted to share an update about what we’ve been up to before we wrap ourselves up in blankets to hibernate until the new year (we’ll be shutting our laptops from today until January 2nd ⛄). Let’s get into what’s been up the past few months, what’s coming, and what we’re excited about right now.
How we lost our slick new npm package name (and then got it back)
In 2019 we started building a library for building node based UIs, and decided to call it “React Flow.” It’s a nice name, so of course “reactflow” and “react-flow” were already taken. The best option we had for us was “react-flow-renderer,” so we took what we could get.
What’s new at React Flow - Fall 2022 🍂
Howdy! Here’s a dispatch straight from our desks about what’s happened in the last couple of months at React Flow: updates, news, and a peek behind-the-scenes. Here we go.
React Flow 11 Release
A lot has happened since we published our last blog post six months ago. We got our first pro subscribers, we hired John who helps us with the docs, communication and community and we are all working full time on React Flow. Today we are releasing a new major version with lots of new features and very few breaking changes (unlike the last major update..).
Releasing React Flow 10 and React Flow Pro
Almost two years ago we open sourced React Flow that was built for our flow-based data processing tool Datablocks. Since then we invested more and more time in React Flow and it got a lot of traction (25k+ website visitors per month, 9k+ stars on Github, 1k+ Discord members, 100k+ weekly downloads on npm).
