Idea Vault: Tree view



Idea:
A Bookmarklet or a Browser extension to select the root element of a DOM (UL/OL) to view the Inverted tree structure of its child nodes.

Due to usability issues in horizontal scrolling, we settled on Expand/Collapse Tree view design for almost all usecases. At times I find, it would be easier to understand if we can visualize the Expand/Collapse Tree view to traditional inverted tree structure.






Usecases
  • Role Hierarchy trees, 
  • JSON - visualize JSON as inverted tree while inspecting data structure. 
XPath for selected node is my must have feature
