mruby-terminal-table Build Status

A fast and simple, yet feature rich ASCII table generator for mruby based on terminal-table.

Installation

Add the line below to your build_config.rb:

MRuby::Build.new do |conf|
  # ... (snip) ...
  conf.gem 'mruby-terminal-table'
end

Or add this line to your aplication's mrbgem.rake:

MRuby::Gem::Specification.new('your-mrbgem') do |spec|
  # ... (snap) ...
  spec.add_dependency 'mruby-terminal-table'
end

Usage

To generate a table, provide an array of rows:

rows  = [ ['One', 1], ['Two', 2], ['Three', 3] ]

table = Terminal::Table.new rows: rows

# > puts table
#
# +-------+---+
# | One   | 1 |
# | Two   | 2 |
# | Three | 3 |
# +-------+---+

The constructor can also be given a block which is either yielded the Table object or instance evaluated:

table = Terminal::Table.new do |t|
  t.rows = rows
end

table = Terminal::Table.new do
  self.rows = rows
end

Adding rows one by one:

table = Terminal::Table.new do |t|
  t << ['One', 1]
  t.add_row ['Two', 2]
end

To add separators between rows:

table = Terminal::Table.new do |t|
  t << ['One', 1]
  t << :separator
  t.add_row ['Two', 2]
  t.add_separator
  t.add_row ['Three', 3]
end

# > puts table
#
# +-------+---+
# | One   | 1 |
# +-------+---+
# | Two   | 2 |
# +-------+---+
# | Three | 3 |
# +-------+---+

Cells can handle multiline content:

table = Terminal::Table.new do |t|
  t << ['One', 1]
  t << :separator
  t.add_row ["Two\nDouble", 2]
  t.add_separator
  t.add_row ['Three', 3]
end

# > puts table
#
# +--------+---+
# | One    | 1 |
# +--------+---+
# | Two    | 2 |
# | Double |   |
# +--------+---+
# | Three  | 3 |
# +--------+---+

Headings

To add a head to the table:

table = Terminal::Table.new headings: %w(Word Number), rows: rows

# > puts table
#
# +-------+--------+
# | Word  | Number |
# +-------+--------+
# | One   | 1      |
# | Two   | 2      |
# | Three | 3      |
# +-------+--------+

To add a title to the table:

table = Terminal::Table.new title: 'Cheatsheet', headings: %w(Word Number), rows: rows

# > puts table
#
# +------------+--------+
# |     Cheatsheet      |
# +------------+--------+
# | Word       | Number |
# +------------+--------+
# | One        | 1      |
# | Two        | 2      |
# | Three      | 3      |
# +------------+--------+

Alignment

To align the second column to the right:

table.align_column 1, :right

# > puts table
#
# +-------+--------+
# | Word  | Number |
# +-------+--------+
# | One   |      1 |
# | Two   |      2 |
# | Three |      3 |
# +-------+--------+

To align an individual cell, you specify the cell value in a hash along the alignment:

table << ['Four', value: 4.0, alignment: :center]

# > puts table
#
# +-------+--------+
# | Word  | Number |
# +-------+--------+
# | One   |      1 |
# | Two   |      2 |
# | Three |      3 |
# | Four  |  4.0   |
# +-------+--------+

Custom styles

To specify style options:

table = Terminal::Table.new headings: %w(Word Number), rows: rows, style: { width: 80 }

# > puts table
#
# +--------------------------------------+---------------------------------------+
# | Word                                 | Number                                |
# +--------------------------------------+---------------------------------------+
# | One                                  | 1                                     |
# | Two                                  | 2                                     |
# | Three                                | 3                                     |
# +--------------------------------------+---------------------------------------+

And change styles on the fly:

table.style = { width: 40, padding_left: 3, border_x: '=', border_i: 'x' }

# > puts table
#
# x====================x=================x
# |               Cheatsheet             |
# x====================x=================x
# |   Word             |   Number        |
# x====================x=================x
# |   One              |   1             |
# |   Two              |   2             |
# |   Three            |   3             |
# x====================x=================x

You can also use styles to add a separator after every row:

table = Terminal::Table.new do |t|
  t.add_row [1, 'One']
  t.add_row [2, 'Two']
  t.add_row [3, 'Three']
  t.style = { all_separators: true }
end

# > puts table
#
# +---+-------+
# | 1 | One   |
# +---+-------+
# | 2 | Two   |
# +---+-------+
# | 3 | Three |
# +---+-------+

To change the default style options:

Terminal::Table::Style.defaults = { width: 80 }

All Table objects created afterwards will inherit these defaults.

Constructor and setters

Valid options for the constructor are rows, headings, style and title - and all options can also be set on the created table object by their setter method:

table = Terminal::Table.new

table.title    = 'Cheatsheet'
table.headings = %w(Word Number)
table.rows     = rows
table.style    = { width: 40 }
