VueJS Tree

A highly customizable and blazing fast VueJs tree viewer.

Getting Started

Install

You can install using yarn:

$ yarn add vuejs-tree

or with npm:

$ npm install vuejs-tree

Usage

Add the following lines at the top of your .js file who contain your Vue instance.

  import Tree from 'vuejs-tree'
  Vue.use(Tree)

  // in your vue instance
  methods: {
    getTree: function(treeId) {
      for (var i = 0; i <= this.$children.length - 1; i++) {
        if (this.$children[i].$props.id == treeId) return this.$children[i]
      }
    }
  }

Or add the following lines in your Vue instance.

  import Tree from 'vuejs-tree'


  // in your vue instance
  components: {
    'tree': Tree
  },
  methods: {
    getTree: function(treeId) {
      for (var i = 0; i <= this.$children.length - 1; i++) {
        if (this.$children[i].$props.id == treeId) return this.$children[i]
      }
    }
  }

Then add the following line in your html file to generate a tree. You can have as many trees per page as you want.

  <tree id="my-tree-id" :custom-options="myCustomOptions" :nodes="treeDisplayData"></tree>

Data Structure

You need to define data to display which is a nested array of hash.

Example:

var nodes = [
  {
    text: "Root 1",
    nodes: [
      {
        text: "Child 1",
        nodes: [
          {
            text: "Grandchild 1"
          },
          {
            text: "Grandchild 2"
          }
        ]
      },
      {
        text: "Child 2"
      }
    ]
  },
  {
    text: "Root 2"
  }
];

Node properties

Here is a fully customized node:

{
  id: 1,
  text: "Root 1",
  definition: "First node",
  depth: 1,
  checkable: false,
  selectable: false,
  expandable: true,
  disabled: false,
  tags: [42],
  state: {
    checked: false,
    expanded: false,
    selected: false
  },
  nodes: [
    {},
    ...
  ]
}

The Following properties define a node level css and behavior.

id

String or Integer --> Mandatory

Used in the tree to differentiate each nodes.

name

String --> Mandatory

The text value displayed at the right of the node icons.

definition

String --> Optional

If some text is given, then it will show as a tooltip.

depth

Integer --> Optional

It correspond to the node depth, starting from 0, 1 or anything.
It's advisable to fill theses fields if somes of your nodes have the same id.

disabled

Boolean --> Optional, default: false

Used to specifie if the node is disabled or not.

tags

[Integer] --> Optional

The tag is displayed at the right end of the line.

checkable

Boolean --> Optional, default: true

Used to enable or disable the check event.

selectable

Boolean --> Optional, default: true

Used to enable or disable the select event.

expandable

Boolean --> Optional, default: true

Used to enable or disable the expand event.

state

checkable

Boolean --> Optional, default: true

Another way to enable or disable the check event.

selectable

Boolean --> Optional, default: true

Another way to enable or disable the select event.

expandable

Boolean --> Optional, default: true

Another way to enable or disable the expand event.

nodes

Object --> Optional

Used to display node's children.
Look above for a structure example

Options

Here is an example of a customOptions hash the tree take.
I suggest you to use a vuejs computed function if you want to use function pointer.
For the icons, it's only compatible with Font Awesome.

var customOptions = {
  icon: "fa-folder",
  iconColor: "#007AD5",
  selectedIcon: "fa-folder-open",
  selectedIconColor: "#2ECC71",
  addElemIcon: 'fa-plus',
  addElemIconColor: '#007AD5',
  style: {
    tree: 'overflow: hidden; border: none;',
    row: 'background-color: blue;'
  },
  treeEvents: {
    expanded: {
      state: true,
      fn: this.updateNodes
    },
    collapsed: {
      state: true,
      fn: this.updateNodes
    },
    checked: {
      state: true,
      fn: this.updateNodeChecked
    }
  },
  events: {
    selected: {
      state: false,
      fn: null
    },
    editableName: {
      state: true,
      calledEvent: 'expanded'
    }
  }
}
Option name detail
icon node folder icon
iconColor folder's icon color
selectedIcon node's icon when selected
selectedIconColor node icon's color when selected
addElemIcon icon to add a node
addElemIconColor add node icon's color
style
tree override default tree css
row override default tree node css

Events

Tree

You can call your own function here by assigning a function pointer in the tree options and changing it's state to true.
These functions are called after all tree modification.

nodeSelected

Called when a node is selected.
treeOptions.treeEvents.selected.fn

nodeExpanded && nodeCollapsed

Called when a node is expanded.
treeOptions.treeEvents.expanded.fn

Called when a node is collapsed.
treeOptions.treeEvents.collapsed.fn

nodeChecked

Called when a node is collapsed.
treeOptions.treeEvents.checked.fn

Tree row

You can call your own function here by assigning a function pointer in the tree options. It will replace the existing behavior of the tree for this event.
You can also disabled an event by changing it's state to false.

toggleSelected

Called when a node is selected.
treeOptions.events.selected.fn

toggleExpanded

Called when a node is expanded or collapsed.
treeOptions.events.expanded.fn

toggleChecked

Called when a node is checked.
treeOptions.events.checked.fn

editableName

You can call a special function who can be used to edit a node, usually with Ajax request, if you assign it's pointer
treeOptions.events.editableName.fn
Or you can call an existing event by assigining it's name in
treeOptions.events.editableName.calledEvent
example : treeOptions.events.editableName.calledEvent = 'selected'

Methods

Methods Params:

depth --> Optionnal but help distinguish nodes with the same id.

argWanted --> It can either be a node attribute name (string) or a array of node attribute name (like ['id', 'name']).

format --> If you want the function to return an plain array (false) or a hash tree (true).

maxDepth --> The function will only access nodes within the maxDepth.

fullNode --> Return only node ids or node objects.

conditions --> It' used to affect only the nodes who match it. For example if the condition is {checked: true}, the function will affect only the nodes who are checked. You can use all nodes attribute that are present in the node object.

checkNode(nodeId, depth)

Check a node.

uncheckNode(nodeId, depth)

Uncheck a node.

getSelectedNode()

Return the selected node if you have selected a node.

getCheckedNodes(argWanted, format = false)

Return all checked nodes.

getExpandedNodes(argWanted, format = false)

Return all expanded nodes.

checkAllNodes()

Check all nodes.

uncheckAllNodes()

Uncheck all nodes.

expandNode(nodeId, depth)

Expand a node.

collapseNode(nodeId, depth)

Collapse a node.

selectNode(nodeId, depth)

Select a node and deselect the previously selected node if exist.

expandAllNodes()

Expand all nodes.

collapseAllNodes()

Collapse all nodes.

deselectAllNodes()

Deselect all nodes.

findNode(nodeId, maxDepth = 9999)

Find and return a node.

getVisibleNodes(fullNode = false)

Get all visible nodes.

getNodesData(argWanted, conditions = {}, format = false)

Customizable function that return nodes.

Get the tree instance

If you want to call any tree method, you need to get the instance.

For that you just need to call the getTree function and provide your tree id.
