This is to convert list of dictionary which will have child- parent relation to each other. This will convert to nested hierarchy
data = [
{ "name" : "ABC", "parent":"DEF", },
{ "name" : "DEF", "parent":"null" },
{ "name" : "new_name", "parent":"ABC" },
{ "name" : "new_name2", "parent":"ABC" },
{ "name" : "Foo", "parent":"DEF"},
{ "name" : "Bar", "parent":"null"},
{ "name" : "Chandani", "parent":"new_name", "relation": "rel", "depth": 3 },
{ "name" : "Chandani333", "parent":"new_name", "relation": "rel", "depth": 3 }
]
result = {x.get("name"):x for x in data}
#print(result)
tree = [];
for a in data:
#print(a)
if a.get("parent") in result:
parent = result[a.get("parent")]
else:
parent = ""
if parent:
if "children" not in parent:
parent["children"] = []
parent["children"].append(a)
else:
tree.append(a)
print(tree)
