Learn how to display a Tree View in Alfresco with collapsible capacity without any plugin, simply by using CSS.

Last week I had to display results in Tree View, with collapsible capacity. As you know there are many plug-ins extensions available and I’ve seen various examples about doing it with CSS. They’ve all required JavaScript but as I am working in Alfresco repository side webscript I can’t afford those extensions and plugins.

The outcome looks like below:
