Radial Reingold–Tilford Tree
license: gpl-3.0

The tree layout implements the Reingold-Tilford algorithm for efficient, tidy arrangement of layered nodes. The depth of nodes is computed by distance from the root, leading to a ragged appearance. Cartesian orientations are also supported. Implementation based on work by Jeff Heer and Jason Davies using Buchheim et al.'s linear-time variant of the Reingold-Tilford algorithm. Data shows the Flare class hierarchy, also courtesy Jeff Heer.

Compare to this Cartesian layout.

Hi, I have taken the files above "index.html" and "flare.json" and put them in a local folder. When I load index.html nothing is loading. I think it is not loading the json file for me. Is there something I am missing here?

thanks.

Do you have a web server running? It won't work just running in a browser. If not install something like Apache and put the files somewhere that localhost can pick them up.

@Michael-E-Rose

I think <body> is not closed properly in index.html.
