Are there any alternatives to jsPlumb? (for the purpose of connecting DOM elements) [closed]

Questions:

I’m making a gantt project management system, and I’m trying to connect the DOM elements of a UI together, like in this jsPlumb demo:

However, I don’t like jsPlumb much. I searched for alternatives, but couldn’t find any.

Are there any jsPlumb alternatives that you suggest?

Answers:

jsPlumb doesn’t have a Gantt chart connector out of the box, but someone wrote one a year or two ago:

which, when i saw it, i thought was pretty cool. I don’t know a great deal about it, since it’s all in Japanese, but the idea of polishing those connectors up and then adding them to jsPlumb for everyone to use is quite appealing.

i think perhaps the code is in this github project:

https://github.com/komagata/jquery.ganttView

..but be aware if you do try to integrate them, the code has moved on a little since they were written so you might have a little bit of work to do up front. I’d be happy to help you if you want to pursue this.
