Convert a hierarchy from flat to nested representation.

Build Status

Example

var FlatToNested, flatToNested, flat;

FlatToNested = require('flat-to-nested');
flatToNested = new FlatToNested( /* can take a config object to use other property names */ );

flat = [
    {id: 111, parent: 11},
    {id: 11, parent: 1},
    {id: 12, parent: 1},
    {id: 1}
];

var nested = flatToNested.convert(flat);
console.log(nested);

//  {
//      id: 1,
//      children: [
//          {
//              id: 11,
//              children: [
//                  {
//                      id: 111
//                  }
//              ]
//          },
//          {
//              id: 12
//          }
//      ]
//  }

Configuration

The constructor accepts an optional object with some or all of these properties:

flatToNested = new FlatToNested({
    // The name of the property with the node id in the flat representation
    id: 'id',
    // The name of the property with the parent node id in the flat representation
    parent: 'parent',
    // The name of the property that will hold the children nodes in the nested representation
    children: 'children'
}});
