Demo Wednesday: Connecting nodes by dragging and dropping

We've published a new demo: Connecting nodes by dragging and dropping

Ever thought about the process of establishing a new connection when a user moves one element on top of another or over a link that connects two elements (with sufficient space between them)? Or perhaps you've wondered how to position a new element automatically beside the target element and allow the user to select the preferred direction for its placement?

Take a look at this demo to witness how both these situations can be accomplished. The demo utilizes SVG previews to aid the user in comprehending the consequences of each drop action.
