Amazing Print

RubyGems RubyGems | Travis CI Specs Lint | Gitter

AmazingPrint is a fork of AwesomePrint which became stale and should be used in its place to avoid conflicts. It is a Ruby library that pretty prints Ruby objects in full color exposing their internal structure with proper indentation. Rails ActiveRecord objects and usage within Rails templates are supported via included mixins.

IRB integration

To use amazing_print as default formatter in irb and Rails console add the following code to your ~/.irbrc file:

require "amazing_print"
AmazingPrint.irb!

PRY integration

If you miss amazing_print's way of formatting output, here's how you can use it in place of the formatting which comes with pry. Add the following code to your ~/.pryrc:

require "amazing_print"
AmazingPrint.pry!

Logger Convenience Method

amazing_print adds the 'ap' method to the Logger and ActiveSupport::BufferedLogger classes letting you call:

logger.ap object

By default, this logs at the :debug level. You can override that globally with:

:log_level => :info

in the custom defaults (see below). You can also override on a per call basis with:

logger.ap object, :warn

ActionView Convenience Method

amazing_print adds the 'ap' method to the ActionView::Base class making it available within Rails templates. For example:

<%= ap @accounts.first %>   # ERB
!= ap @accounts.first       # HAML

With other web frameworks (ex: in Sinatra templates) you can explicitly request HTML formatting:

<%= ap @accounts.first, :html => true %>

String Convenience Methods

Use methods such as .red to set string color:

irb> puts "red text".red
red text # (it's red)

Setting Custom Defaults

You can set your own default options by creating .aprc file in your home directory. Within that file assign your defaults to AmazingPrint.defaults. For example:

# ~/.aprc file.
AmazingPrint.defaults = {
  :indent => -2,
  :color => {
    :hash  => :whiteish,
    :class => :white
  }
}

Versioning

AmazingPrint follows the Semantic Versioning standard.
