<script src="path/to/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script src="path/to/directoryTree.js"></script>

2. Create a container for the directory tree.

<div id="directoryTree_container"></div>

3. Create buttons to expand/collapse all the nodes.

<button type="button" class="directoryTree_expand">
  Expand All
<button type="button" class="directoryTree_collapse">
  Collapse All

4. Create an array of items for the directory tree.

var filepaths = ["node 1", "node 2", "node 3", ... ];

5. Attach the plugin to an element. Select multiple items paramater is false.

$('#directoryTree_container').directoryTree([filepaths, false]);

6. Enable the expand/collapse buttons.

$('.directoryTree_expand').click(function (e) {

$('.directoryTree_collapse').click(function (e) {
