BPMN-js: A BPMN 2.0 Rendering Toolkit and Web Modeler

BPMN-js - BPMN 2.0 for the web

View and edit BPMN 2.0 diagrams in the browser.

bpmn-js screencast


Use the library pre-packaged or include it via npm into your node-style web-application.


To get started, create a bpmn-js instance and render BPMN 2.0 diagrams in the browser:

const xml = '...'; // my BPMN 2.0 xml
const viewer = new BpmnJS({
  container: 'body'

try {
  const { warnings } = await viewer.importXML(xml);

} catch (err) {
  console.log('error rendering', err);

Checkout our examples for many more supported usage scenarios.

Dynamic Attach/Detach

You may attach or detach the viewer dynamically to any element on the page, too:

const viewer = new BpmnJS();

// attach it to some element

// detach the panel


Build and Run

Prepare the project by installing all dependencies:

npm install

Then, depending on your use-case you may run any of the following commands:

# build the library and run all tests
npm run all

# spin up a single local modeler instance
npm start

# run the full development setup
npm run dev

You may need to perform additional project setup when building the latest development snapshot.


bpmn-js builds on top of a few powerful tools:

  • bpmn-moddle: Read / write support for BPMN 2.0 XML in the browsers
  • diagram-js: Diagram rendering and editing toolkit
