Installable with the Extension Manager


A new Document Tree Macro has been introduced in XWiki 6.3.

The jsTree Macro uses the XWiki RESTful API and jsTree to display a tree view of wiki documents. 

jsTree is a jquery plugin, that provides interactive trees. It is absolutely free, open source and distributed under the MIT license.
jsTree is easily extendable, themable and configurable, it supports HTML & JSON data sources and AJAX loading.


The hierarchy of the jsTree Macro equals the breadcrumb navigation of XWiki. Documents with parent pages which no longer exist and documents with no parent page are shown in the root node of the space to which the documents belong.

NewCreates a new child document on the selected node
DeleteDeletes the selected document


Prerequisites & Installation Instructions

We recommend using the Extension Manager to install this extension (Make sure that the text "Installable with the Extension Manager" is displayed at the top right location on this page to know if this extension can be installed with the Extension Manager). Note that installing Extensions when being offline is currently not supported and you'd need to use some complex manual method.

You can also use the following manual method, which is useful if this extension cannot be installed with the Extension Manager or if you're using an old version of XWiki that doesn't have the Extension Manager:

  1. Log in the wiki with a user having Administration rights
  2. Go to the Administration page and select the Import category
  3. Follow the on-screen instructions to upload the downloaded XAR
  4. Click on the uploaded XAR and follow the instructions
  5. You'll also need to install all dependent Extensions that are not already installed in your wiki
