Tquila Commons: jQuery Org Chart – a plugin for visualising data in a tree-like structure


jQuery OrgChart is a plugin that allows you to render structures with nested elements in a easy-to-read tree structure. To build the tree all you need is to make a single line call to the plugin and supply the HTML element Id for a nested unordered list element that is representative of the data you’d like to display. Features include:

  • Very easy to use given a nested unordered list element.
  • Showing/hiding a particular branch of the tree by clicking on the respective node.
  • Nodes can contain any amount of HTML except <li> and <ul>.
  • Easy to style.

    Hi, I like this solution for making an interactive organizational chart. I have a question though, would it be possible to include more data in each box fo example an image or a link to someone’s profile..

    Thanks a lot for the great work.

    Yes, that is right I just didn’t see that before. I am planning to create a dynamic wordpress plugin using your script. Thanks again.

    Love this, thank you.
    I’d really like to see more tree views done in this manner, it’s a much ‘richer’ EU experience IMO.
