Getting Started

Install with: npm install structures


var Structure = require('structures');

var myStructure = {
  source: person.list,
  children: {
    addresses: {
      source: person.addresses,
      key: 'person_id',
      parent_key: 'id'

new Structure(myStructure, { id: 1,2,3,4 })
  .on('done', function (structure) { console.log(structure); })
  .on('error', function (err) { console.log(err); })

person.list and person.addresses should be functions which return a database query suitable for use with node-postgres / any-db.
