Tool for family trees. This implementation is primarily from wikipedia, and is based on the now deprecated {{familytree}} template.

The Basics

In the chart sections, you put "boxes" separated with pipes, and they translate to symbols. The basics:

{{chart/start|sample tree}}
{{chart|HA|y|ON|}}
{{chart| |,|-|^|-|.| |}}
{{chart|RU| |MO|}}
{{chart/end}}

This gives:

{{{HA}}}{{{ON}}}
{{{RU}}}{{{MO}}}

Next, add cat names to the boxes like this:

{{chart/start|sample tree}}
{{chart|HA|y|ON|HA=[[Halftail]]|ON=[[One-eye]]}}
{{chart| |,|-|^|-|.| |}}
{{chart|RU| |MO|RU=[[Runningwind]]|MO=[[Mousefur]]}}
{{chart/end}}

Giving:

HalftailOne-eye
RunningwindMousefur

And you can color the boxes, either through using "m," "f," or "u" for male, female, and miscellaneous respectively, or through manually entering the hex codes:

{{chart/start|sample tree}}
{{chart|HA|y|ON|HA=[[Halftail]]|ON=[[One-eye]]
|boxstyle_HA=m
|boxstyle_ON=f}}
{{chart| |,|-|^|-|.| |}}
{{chart|RU| |MO|RU=[[Runningwind]]|MO=[[Mousefur]]
|boxstyle_RU=m
|boxstyle_MO=f}}
{{chart/end}}

Giving:

Halftail ♂One-eye ♀
Runningwind ♂Mousefur ♀

Migrating from familytree

This template is largely compatible with {{familytree}}, however there are a few rarely used "mixed" tiles that have been renamed. Please see here for a full list.

Additionally, a shortcut for coloring male, female, and miscellaneous boxes has been added. To use them, simply replace the contents of the boxstyle_ID parameters with either "f," "m," or "u" (case insensitive), for female, male, and miscellaneous colored boxes.

{{chart/start|sample tree}}
{{chart|HA|y|ON|HA=[[Halftail]]|ON=[[One-eye]]
|boxstyle_HA=m
|boxstyle_ON=f}}
{{chart| |,|-|^|-|.| |}}
{{chart|RU| |MO|RU=[[Runningwind]]|MO=[[Mousefur]]
|boxstyle_RU=m
|boxstyle_MO=f}}
{{chart/end}}

Giving:

Halftail ♂One-eye ♀
Runningwind ♂Mousefur ♀


This method should be preferred over manually entering the hex codes, as it is clearer, uses less text, and eases any updates to the style in the future.
