TheSortableTree

Engine Based Drag&Drop GUI for awesome_nested_set gem. Rails >= 3.1

School teacher came to help! TaDa! ;)

Drag&Drop sortable tree

TheSortableTree

Simple nested sets (min option)

TheSortableTree

sortable_tree - recursive helper-method for render sortable awesome_nested_set tree.

sortable_tree uses partials for rendering, that's why it is so easy to customize!

List of available variants of rendering

  • Drag&Drop sortable tree
  • Simple nested sets (min option)
  • Nested sets with expand/collapse animation (expand option) [under development]
  • Nested comments (comments option) [under development]

Can I use gem with Rails 2 or Rails 3.0?

Take files from the gem and put it in your rails 2 application.

View helper and view files does not depend on the version of rails.

Copy and Paste rebuild function from TheSortableTreeController.

Perhaps, you may have to slightly change the function of the controller.

Is it fast?

Hmmmm...

  • Development env
  • 584 elements
  • 3 levels deep

Rendered by 50 sec.

I think it is good result for rendering by partials.

Can you makes it faster? Welcome!

ERB vs HAML vs SLIM

So, ERB and SLIM fans want to make gem independent of HAML.

Ok, let it be. But you will convert view partials youself. It's my revenge ;)

Read project wiki for looking ERB partials

By default I'm use HAML, and now you should define it manually in your Gemfile.

Install

gem 'haml'
gem 'awesome_nested_set' # gem 'nested_set'
gem 'the_sortable_tree'

bundle

Require

  1. gem 'nested_set' or gem 'awesome_nested_set'
  2. gem 'haml'
  3. JQuery UI

Example of using with Page Model

Jquery

app/assets/javascripts/application.js

//= require jquery
//= require jquery-ui
//= require jquery_ujs

Extend your Model

class Page < ActiveRecord::Base
  include TheSortableTree::Scopes
  # any code here
end

Extend your Controller

class PagesController < ApplicationController
  include TheSortableTreeController::Rebuild
  # any code here
end

or (for reversed tree)

class PagesController < ApplicationController
  include TheSortableTreeController::ReversedRebuild
  # any code here
end

Extend your Routes

resources :pages do
  collection do
    get :manage
    post :rebuild
  end
end

manage action or any else action for show sortable tree

rebuild action is required action for correctly work of the_sortable_tree

Find your tree

class PagesController < ApplicationController
  include TheSortableTreeController::Rebuild

  def manage
    @pages = Page.nested_set.all
  end

  # any code here
end

or

class PagesController < ApplicationController
  include TheSortableTreeController::ReversedRebuild

  def manage
    @pages = Page.reversed_nested_set.all
  end

  # any code here
end

Render your tree with TheSortableTree (Haml markup)

- content_for :css do
  = stylesheet_link_tag 'the_sortable_tree', :media => :screen
- content_for :js do
  = javascript_include_tag 'jquery.ui.nestedSortable'

= sortable_tree @pages, :new_url => new_page_path, :max_levels => 4

or (without administrator controls and drag&drop)

- content_for :css do
  = stylesheet_link_tag 'the_sortable_tree_min', :media => :screen

= sortable_tree @pages, :new_url => new_page_path, :path => 'the_sortable_tree_min'

Customize tree for User (min version)

Use sortable_tree as view helper for simple rendering of nested_set tree

rails g the_sortable_tree:views pages min

It's will generate minimal set of view partials for sortable_tree helper

create  app/views/pages/the_sortable_tree_min
create  app/views/pages/the_sortable_tree_min/_children.html.haml
create  app/views/pages/the_sortable_tree_min/_node.html.haml
create  app/views/pages/the_sortable_tree_min/_link.html.haml
create  app/views/pages/the_sortable_tree_min/_tree.html.haml

Just use it or Customize and use it!

- content_for :css do
  = stylesheet_link_tag 'the_sortable_tree_min', :media => :screen
= sortable_tree @pages, :new_url => new_page_path, :path => 'pages/the_sortable_tree_min'

Customize tree for Administrator (full version)

rails g the_sortable_tree:views pages

It's will generate view partials for sortable_tree helper

create  app/views/pages/the_sortable_tree
create  app/views/pages/the_sortable_tree/_controls.html.haml
create  app/views/pages/the_sortable_tree/_node.html.haml
create  app/views/pages/the_sortable_tree/_js_init_sortable_tree.html.haml
create  app/views/pages/the_sortable_tree/_js_on_update_tree.html.haml
create  app/views/pages/the_sortable_tree/_js_rebuild_ajax.html.haml
create  app/views/pages/the_sortable_tree/_link.html.haml
create  app/views/pages/the_sortable_tree/_children.html.haml
create  app/views/pages/the_sortable_tree/_new.html.haml
create  app/views/pages/the_sortable_tree/_tree.html.haml

Customize and use it!

- content_for :css do
  = stylesheet_link_tag 'the_sortable_tree', :media => :screen
- content_for :js do
  = javascript_include_tag 'jquery.ui.nestedSortable'

= sortable_tree @pages, :new_url => new_page_path, :path => 'pages/the_sortable_tree', :max_levels => 2
