Tree - Installation

# @react-md/tree

Create accessible tree widgets following the tree view specifications using the material design styles and fairly customizable renderers and styles and reasonable defaults.

# Installation

$ npm install --save @react-md/tree

It is also recommended to install these other packages as they work hand-in-hand with this package:

$ npm install --save @react-md/theme \
    @react-md/typography \
    @react-md/icon \
    @react-md/material-icons \

# Usage

The main export from this package is the Tree component which allows you to render a tree from TreeData which is really a lookup of Record<TreeItemId, TreeItem>. The Tree component is fully controlled and requires you to provide the selection and logic expansion with a few props. You can use the useTreeItemExpansion and useTreeItemSelection hooks to get pretty reasonable support out of the box including multi-select behavior.

If you are a Typescript user, this package also exports a decent amount of types to help out such as the TreeData, BaseTreeItem, and TreeItemSorter.

Here's a quick example:

import { render } from "react-dom";
import {
} from "@react-md/tree";

interface MyTreeItem extends BaseTreeItem {
  name: string;

const data: TreeData<MyTreeItem> = {
  "item-1-id": {
    name: "Root Node",
    itemId:" item-1-id",
    parentId: null,
  "item-2-id": {
    name: "Child 1",
    itemId: "item-2-id",
    parentId: "item-1-id"<
  "item-3-id": {
    name: "Child 2",
    itemId: "item-3-id",
    parentId: "item-1-id",

const Example: FC = () => {
  const selection = useTreeItemSelection([], false);
  const expansion = useTreeItemExpansion([]);
