A small and simple jQuery plugin that converts hierarchical data defined in an array of objects into a collapsible/expandable tree table view with tree lines through on the rows.

How to use it:

1. Load the stylesheet tree-table.css for the basic styling of the tree table. Feel free to modify and override the CSS rules in the CSS to fit your design.

<link rel="stylesheet" href="./css/tree-table.css" />

2. Create an empty HTML table on the page.

<div class="tree-table-wrap">
  <table class="tree-table">
    <thead>
      <tr>
        <th>Column 1</th>
        <th>Column 2</th>
        <th>Column 3</th>
        <th>Column 4</th>
        <th>Column 5</th>
      </tr>
    </thead>
    <tbody id="table-tree">
    </tbody>
  </table>
</div>

3. Define your hierarchical data in an array of objects as follows:

var items = [
{
    id: 1,
    priority: 1,
    from: '[email protected]',
    subject: 'Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing',
    sentDate: '01/01/2019'
},
{
    id: 2,
    priority: 2,
    from: '[email protected]',
    subject: 'It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted',
    sentDate: '01/01/2019',
    parentId: 1
},
{
    id: 3,
    priority: 3,
    from: '[email protected]',
    subject: 'It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted',
    sentDate: '01/01/2019',
    parentId: 1
},
{
    id: 4,
    priority: 4,
    from: '[email protected]',
    subject: 'It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted',
    sentDate: '01/01/2019',
    parentId: 3
},
{
    id: 5,
    priority: 5,
    from: '[email protected]',
    subject: 'It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted',
    sentDate: '01/01/2019'
},
{
    id: 6,
    priority: 6,
    from: '[email protected]',
    subject: 'It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted',
    sentDate: '01/01/2019'
},
{
    id: 7,
