ASCII Folder Tree Generator In jQuery - Tree Builder

A jQuery-powered tree builder that provides a user-friendly online editor to generate a hierarchical ASCII art tree from a nested HTML list.

Hover over each list item you will see a tree control containing Add Sibling, Add Child, and Delete links.

How to use it:

1. Create an input field for the root node.

<input id="p_name" placeholder="Top Node" />

2. Create an empty HTML list for the ASCII tree builder.

<ul id="tree" class="tree"></ul>

3. Create a pre element to hold the ASCII tree.

<pre id="out"></pre>

4. Create the HTML for the tree controls.

<div class="hidden" id="template">
    <li class="tree-node">
      <input placeholder="filename" />
      <span class="controls">
        <a class="btn-link" href="#" data-func="add-sibling"
        <a class="btn-link" href="#" data-func="add-child"
        <a class="btn-link" href="#" data-func="delete"
/* hide the controls on page load */
.controls {
  display: none;

5. Download the plugin and insert the main JavaScript tree.js after jQuery and done.

<script src="/path/to/cdn/jquery.slim.min.js"></script>
<script src="/path/to/js/tree.js"></script>
