Use NestedSets for category ?
I wanted to create a model Category, which a Category has parent and childrens Category for create sub-category, sub-sub-category, etc... And they have attribute "position" for sort them.
And i have see in the ORM docs : NestedSets. It sounds like interesting. You think it's a good way to use NestedSets for what i want to do ?
Nested sets is a mechanism to store tree structures in a flat list, see
for an explanation.
If your catagory structure is a tree (which it probably is), then the answer is yes.
Thanks for confirmation
Usually i use just an int attribut for "position". And in my backend, i sort objects with HTML table and JS Drag'n'drop for save the good "position".
But i thinks here it's will be more difficult, i will use "next_sibling" and "previous_sibling" for manage position.
i have finish my backend for manage Category with the Nested set model, it's work perfectly and simply !
Thanks for this feature, really
