Integration of OrgChart is easy, you can directly use the standalone build by including jquery.orgchart.js and jquery.orgchart.css in your webapps.


Include all the required JS+CSS libraries on page.

<link rel="stylesheet" href="
css/font-awesome.min.css" > 
  <link rel="stylesheet" href="jquery.orgchart.min.css">
<script src=""></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="jquery.orgchart.min.js"></script>


Creating html div container for displaying organisational chart.

<div id="chart-container"></div>


Added few custom stylesheet on page for styling chart container.

html,body {
  width: 100%;
  height: 100%;
  margin: 0;
  padding: 0;
body {
  font-family: Arial;
  font-size: 14px;
  line-height: 1.428571429;
  color: #333333;
#chart-container {
  position: relative;
  display: inline-block;
  top: 10px;

  width: calc(100% - 24px);
  border: 2px dashed #aaa;

Now creating the array of employee as per organisational level and call plugin function to map employee as per organisational tree view.

<script type="text/javascript">
    $(function() {
    var datascource = {
      'name': 'Rohit Kumar',
      'title': 'general manager',
      'children': [
        { 'name': 'Manish Patel', 'title': 'department manager', 'collapsed': true,
          'children': [
            { 'name': 'Mohit Kumar', 'title': 'senior engineer', 'className': 'slide-up' },
            { 'name': 'Ankita Rana', 'title': 'senior engineer', 'collapsed': true, 'className': 'slide-up',
