Decoration

Is done by using (subclasses of) DecoratedTree. Objects of this type wrap around a given Tree and themselves behave like a (possibly altered) tree. Per default, DecoratedTree just passes every method on to its underlying tree. Decoration is done not by overwriting __getitem__, but by offering two additional methods

  • DecoratedTree.get_decorated()
  • DecoratedTree.decorate().

get_decorated(pos) returns the (decorated) content of the original tree at the given position. decorate(pos, widget,..) decorates the given widget assuming its placed at a given position. The former is trivially based on the latter, Containers that display Tree‘s use get_decorated instead of __getitem__() when working on DecoratedTree‘s.

The reason for this slightly odd design choice is that first it makes it easy to read the original content of a decorated tree: You simply use dtree[pos]. Secondly, this makes it possible to recursively add line decoration when nesting (decorated) Trees.

The module decoration offers a few readily usable DecoratedTree subclasses that implement decoration by indentation, arrow shapes and subtree collapsing: CollapsibleTree, IndentedTree, CollapsibleIndentedTree, ArrowTree and CollapsibleArrowTree. Each can be further customized by constructor parameters.

API

class urwidtrees.decoration.ArrowTree(walker, indent=3, childbar_offset=0, arrow_hbar_char=u'u2500', arrow_hbar_att=None, arrow_vbar_char=u'u2502', arrow_vbar_att=None, arrow_tip_char=u'u27a4', arrow_tip_att=None, arrow_att=None, arrow_connector_tchar=u'u251c', arrow_connector_lchar=u'u2514', arrow_connector_att=None, **kwargs)[source]

Decorates the tree by indenting nodes according to their depth and using the gaps to draw arrows indicate the tree structure.

decorate(pos, widget, is_first=True)[source]

builds a list element for given position in the tree. It consists of the original widget taken from the Tree and some decoration columns depending on the existence of parent and sibling positions. The result is a urwid.Columns widget.

class urwidtrees.decoration.CollapseIconMixin(is_collapsed=<function <lambda>>, icon_collapsed_char='+', icon_expanded_char='-', icon_collapsed_att=None, icon_expanded_att=None, icon_frame_left_char='[', icon_frame_right_char=']', icon_frame_att=None, icon_focussed_att=None, **kwargs)[source]

Mixin for Tree that allows to collapse subtrees and use an indicator icon in line decorations. This Mixin adds the ability to construct collapse-icon for a position, indicating its collapse status to CollapseMixin.

class urwidtrees.decoration.CollapseMixin(is_collapsed=<function <lambda>>, **kwargs)[source]

Mixin for Tree that allows to collapse subtrees.

This works by overwriting [first|last]_child_position, forcing them to return None if the given position is considered collapsed. We use a (given) callable is_collapsed that accepts positions and returns a boolean to determine which node is considered collapsed.

is_collapsed(pos)[source]

checks if given position is currently collapsed

class urwidtrees.decoration.CollapsibleArrowTree(treelistwalker, icon_offset=0, indent=5, **kwargs)[source]

Arrow-decoration that allows collapsing subtrees

class urwidtrees.decoration.CollapsibleIndentedTree(walker, icon_offset=1, indent=4, **kwargs)[source]

Indent collapsible tree nodes according to their depth in the tree and display icons indicating collapse-status in the gaps.

decorate(pos, widget, is_first=True)[source]

builds a list element for given position in the tree. It consists of the original widget taken from the Tree and some decoration columns depending on the existence of parent and sibling positions. The result is a urwid.Columns widget.

class urwidtrees.decoration.CollapsibleTree(tree, **kwargs)[source]

Undecorated Tree that allows to collapse subtrees

class urwidtrees.decoration.DecoratedTree(content)[source]

Tree that wraps around another Tree and allows to read original content as well as decorated versions thereof.

decorate(pos, widget, is_first=True)[source]

decorate widget according to a position pos in the original tree. setting is_first to False indicates that we are decorating a line that is part of the (multi-line) content at this position, but not the first part. This allows to omit incoming arrow heads for example.

get_decorated(pos)[source]

return widget that consists of the content of original tree at given position plus its decoration.

class urwidtrees.decoration.IndentedTree(tree, indent=2)[source]

Indent tree nodes according to their depth in the tree

exception urwidtrees.decoration.NoSpaceError[source]

too little space for requested decoration
