Collapsible Force Layout
license: gpl-3.0

This example demonstrates how to create a force layout of a hierarchy whose internal nodes are collapsible. Leaf nodes are shown in orange, while internal nodes (packages) are shown in blue. Clicking on an internal node (without dragging) causes that node to expand or collapse, toggling the visibility of its descendant nodes.

The code works well, just make sure you refer to the correct path of the file: d3.min.js

beautiful work mbostock!

This is very nice!

But what if we want to expand the graph to certain level of parents node?
Is it possible? Thanks a lot!
