Folding Results - Example

The following is a working example of result folding which relies on a demo search endpoint. More precisely, this endpoint contains a source whose items describe continents, countries, and cities. These items populate folding fields which represent their relationships, such as:

  • South America:

    "foldingchild": "atlcontinentsouthamerica"
    "foldingcollection": "atlcontinentsouthamerica"
    "foldingparent": "atlcontinentsouthamerica"
    
  • Brazil:

    "foldingchild": "atlcountrybrazil"
    "foldingcollection": "atlcontinentsouthamerica"
    "foldingparent": "atlcontinentsouthamerica"
    
  • Sao Paulo:

    "foldingchild": "atlcitysaopaulo"
    "foldingcollection": "atlcontinentsouthamerica"
    "foldingparent": "atlcountrybrazil"
    

You write the following HTML page:

You open the HTML file in your browser and expand the first continent:
