Version 1.2 (22 Apr 2012)

This package provides a macro for drawing trees with TikZ using the
easy syntax of Alexis Dimitriadis' Qtree. It improves on TikZ's
standard tree-drawing facility by laying out tree nodes without
collisions; it improves on Qtree by adding lots of features from TikZ
(for example, edge labels, arrows between nodes); and it improves on
pst-qtree in being usable with pdfTeX and XeTeX.

Please see tikztree-manual.pdf for instructions and examples.

tikz-qtree – Use ex­ist­ing qtree syn­tax for trees in TikZ

The pack­age pro­vides a macro for draw­ing trees with TikZ us­ing the easy syn­tax of Alexis Dim­i­tri­adis’ Qtree. It im­proves on TikZ’s stan­dard tree-draw­ing fa­cil­ity by lay­ing out tree nodes with­out col­li­sions; it im­proves on Qtree by adding lots of fea­tures from TikZ (for ex­am­ple, edge la­bels, ar­rows be­tween nodes); and it im­proves on pst-qtree in be­ing us­able with pdf and .
