ra-treemenu

A tree-like menu implementation for react-admin.

Inspired from the official react-admin demo application, this package facilitates quick and easy integration of the menu tree in any new or existing react-admin app.

Supported react-admin versions:

  • React-Admin 3.x
React Admin Demo

Installation

Install using npm:

npm install --save @bb-tech/ra-treemenu

Basic Usage

To use ra-treemenu in your react-admin application:

  1. Create a parent resource (non-routing) with the following key in the options prop: isMenuParent = true. Remember to pass the mandatory name prop in this resource as this will be used to map the child resource to it's specified parent in the tree.
<Resource name="users" options={{ "label": "Users", "isMenuParent": true }} />
  1. Now create a child resource under this parent by mapping the menuParent option in the options props to the name of your parent resource.
<Resource name="posts" options={{ "label": "Posts", "menuParent": "users" }} />

This should give you a menu structure like below:

Tree Image

Examples

Here's a simple example of organising the menu into a tree-like structure:

// In App.js
import * as React from 'react';
import { Admin, Resource, Layout } from 'react-admin';
/* Import TreeMenu from the package */
import TreeMenu from '@bb-tech/ra-treemenu';

const App = () => (
    <Admin layout={(props) => <Layout {...props} menu={TreeMenu} />} >
        {/* Dummy parent resource with isMenuParent options as true */}
        <Resource name="users" options={{ "label": "Users", "isMenuParent": true }} />
        {/* Children menu items under parent */}
        <Resource name="posts" options={{ "label": "Posts", "menuParent": "users" }} />
        <Resource name="comments" options={{ "label": "Comments", "menuParent": "users" }} />
        {/* Dummy parent resource with isMenuParent options as true */}
        <Resource name="groups" options={{ "label": "Groups", "isMenuParent": true }} />
        {/* Children menu items under parent */}
        <Resource name="members" options={{ "label": "Members", "menuParent": "groups" }} />
    </Admin>
);

export default App;

You can find an example application implementing this tree menu in the examples directory.

Advanced Recipes

Using a Custom Layout

It is completely possible to use ra-treemenu inside your custom app layout.

// In App.js
/* Import CustomLayout */
import CustomLayout from './CustomLayout';
 
const App = () => (
    <Admin layout={CustomLayout}>
        ...
    </Admin>
);

export default App;
// In CustomLayout.js
/* Import TreeMenu from the package */
import TreeMenu from '@bb-tech/ra-treemenu';
 
const CustomLayout = (props) => (
    <Layout {...props} menu={TreeMenu} />
);

export default CustomLayout;

Using Custom Icons for Resources

For icons, ra-treemenu depends upon material-ui and the defaults for the resources are:

  1. ViewListIcon: For all child resources.
  2. Label: For all parent resources (non-routing).

To use a custom icon (for a parent or a child), pass it as a prop to the <Resource> like:

<Resource name="posts" icon={CustomIcon} options={{ "label": "Posts", "menuParent": "users" }} />
