Simple tables in terminal with Go

Travis Coverage Status Go Report Card GoDoc

This package allows to generate and display ascii tables in the terminal, f.e.:

There are the following key features:

  • Declarative style. Have to write more code, and hell with it.
  • Styling. With 6 predefined styles: MySql-like (default), compact, compact lite, markdown, rounded and unicode. And you can change it.
  • Header and footer. Separated from table body.
  • Multiline cells support. See _example/main.go/_example/04-multiline/main.go for example.
  • Cell content alignment. Left, right or center.
  • Row spanning. By analogy with the way it is done in HTML. See Cell.Span attribute description.
  • Fast! Really fast, see _example/main.go/_example/03-benchmarks-with-others.

Installation

$ go get -u github.com/alexeyco/simpletable

To run unit tests:

$ cd $GOPATH/src/github.com/alexeyco/simpletable
$ go test -cover

To run benchmarks:

$ cd $GOPATH/src/github.com/alexeyco/simpletable
$ go test -bench=.

Comparison with similar libraries see _example/main.go/_example/03-benchmarks-with-others

Basic example

package main

import (
	"fmt"

	"github.com/alexeyco/simpletable"
)

var (
	data = [][]interface{}{
		{1, "Newton G. Goetz", 532.7},
		{2, "Rebecca R. Edney", 1423.25},
		{3, "John R. Jackson", 7526.12},
		{4, "Ron J. Gomes", 123.84},
		{5, "Penny R. Lewis", 3221.11},
	}
)

func main() {
	table := simpletable.New()

	table.Header = &simpletable.Header{
		Cells: []*simpletable.Cell{
			{Align: simpletable.AlignCenter, Text: "#"},
			{Align: simpletable.AlignCenter, Text: "NAME"},
			{Align: simpletable.AlignCenter, Text: "TAX"},
		},
	}

	subtotal := float64(0)
	for _, row := range data {
		r := []*simpletable.Cell{
			{Align: simpletable.AlignRight, Text: fmt.Sprintf("%d", row[0].(int))},
			{Text: row[1].(string)},
			{Align: simpletable.AlignRight, Text: fmt.Sprintf("$ %.2f", row[2].(float64))},
		}

		table.Body.Cells = append(table.Body.Cells, r)
		subtotal += row[2].(float64)
	}

	table.Footer = &simpletable.Footer{
		Cells: []*simpletable.Cell{
			{},
			{Align: simpletable.AlignRight, Text: "Subtotal"},
			{Align: simpletable.AlignRight, Text: fmt.Sprintf("$ %.2f", subtotal)},
		},
	}

	table.SetStyle(simpletable.StyleCompactLite)
	fmt.Println(table.String())
}

Result:

 #         NAME            TAX
--- ------------------ ------------
 1   Newton G. Goetz      $ 532.70
 2   Rebecca R. Edney    $ 1423.25
 3   John R. Jackson     $ 7526.12
 4   Ron J. Gomes         $ 123.84
 5   Penny R. Lewis      $ 3221.11
--- ------------------ ------------
             Subtotal   $ 12827.02

You can see also _example/main.go/01-styles-demo/main.go for styles demonstration.

$ cd $GOPATH/src/github.com/alexeyco/simpletable/_example/01-styles-demo
$ go run main.go

More examples: For more examples see _example directory:

$ cd $GOPATH/src/github.com/alexeyco/simpletable/_example
$ ls -F | grep /

01-styles-demo/
02-ugly-span/
03-benchmarks-with-others/
04-multiline/

Styling

There is 6 styles available. To view them, run _example/main.go/01-styles-demo/main.go:

$ cd $GOPATH/src/github.com/alexeyco/simpletable/_example/01-styles-demo
$ go run main.go

Cell content alignment

You can set cell content alignment:

c := &simpletable.Cell{
	// or simpletable.AlignLeft (default), or simpletable.AlignCenter
	Align:   simpletable.AlignRight, 
	Content: "Subtotal",
}

Column spanning

By analogy with HTML:

c := &simpletable.Cell{
	Span:    2, // Default: 1
	Content: "Subtotal",
}

Note: by default Span is 1. If you try to set it to 0, the value will still be 1.
