NavigationTree.Agent

An agent represing a navigation tree. The agent holds transformed configuration state.

Provides convenience wrappers to generate Twitter/bootstrap-freindly userrole-aware HTML out of this state through NavigationTree.Helper and NavigationTree.Bootstrap.

Navigation tree nodes are to be configured as NavigationTree.Node structs.

Terminology

node: A configuration struct looking like this:

%NavigationTree.Node{
    name: string, # the node's name, like "About Us"
    url: nil or string, # will be set on startup, but may be overridden
    controller: nil or string, # would be set to about-us, but may be overridden
    children:, nil or list of child nodes
    roles: nil or list of strings # role names a user must have to see this navigation item
}

path: A list of node names, e.g. ["Home", "Admin"]

url: Every node gets a url on start_link setup constructed out of its ancestors' url concatenated with "/" whereas is either a safe_string version of the node's name or the specified controller namde in this node's config

Basic usage

  • create a config module or just use NavigationTree.Example
  • Startup Agent possibly in your application setup
  • create you HTML generator or use the shipped NavigationTree.Bootstrap module
  • enjoy!
# startup
NavigationTree.Agent.start_link NavigationTree.Example.config

# getters
NavigationTree.Agent.get.tree
NavigationTree.Agent.get.paths
NavigationTree.Agent.get.root_node (initoal config)

# methods
NavigationTree.Agent.node_of ["Home","Admin"]
# same as
NavigationTree.Agent.node_of "/admin"
# the inverse of node_of is path_of
NavigationTree.Agent.path_of "/admin" # returns ["Home","Admin"]

# parent node
NavigationTree.Agent.parent of ["Home","Admin", "Users"]

# returns next/previous node after "Users" in "Amind"
NavigationTree.Agent.next_sibling ["Home","Admin", "Users"]
NavigationTree.Agent.previous_sibling ["Home","Admin", "Users"]


# HTML
NavigationTree.Agent.as_html [], :bootstrap
# returns HTML for unauthenticated user

NavigationTree.Agent.as_html ["admin", "customer"], :bootstrap 
# returns HTML for user with admin and customer role

# or your tree_to_html implementation:
MyApp.NavigationTree.Sidenav.tree_to_html NavigationTree.Agent.get.tree
