Module: Sequel::Plugins::Tree

Defined in:
lib/sequel/plugins/tree.rb

Overview

The Tree plugin adds additional associations and methods that allow you to treat a Model as a tree.

A column for holding the parent key is required and is :parent_id by default. This may be overridden by passing column name via :key.

Optionally, a column to control order of nodes returned can be specified by passing column name via :order.

If you pass true for the :single_root option, the class will ensure there is only ever one root in the tree.

Examples:

class Node < Sequel::Model
  plugin :tree
end

class Node < Sequel::Model
  plugin :tree, :key=>:parentid, :order=>:position
end

Class Method Details

+ (Object) apply(model, opts = OPTS)

Create parent and children associations. Any options specified are passed to both associations. You can also specify options to use for just the parent association using a :parent option, and options to use for just the children association using a :children option.
