Contributing to Cytoscape.js
Cytoscape.js is an open source project, and anyone interested is encouraged to contribute to Cytoscape.js. We gladly accept pull requests. If you are interested in regular contributions to Cytoscape.js, then we can arrange granting you permission to the repository by contacting us.

Arbor was used in one of Cytoscape.js's included layouts. We made some modifications to the library, written by Samizdat Drafting Co., so that it would work with multiple instances of Cytoscape.js and that it would work on lesser browsers, like IE. Information about this library can be found at the Arbor website and on GitHub where the original code was forked.
