README.md

Description

Display ascii tables that fit in your terminal for almost any data structure.

Build Status

Install

To have it available on all projects, add to your leiningen2's ~/lein/profiles.clj:

{:user {:dependencies [[table "0.5.0"]] }}

To have it on an individual project, add to your project.clj:

[table "0.5.0"]

Usage

To use in a library:

(use '[table.core :only [table]])

table handles rendering combinations of maps, vecs, lists and sets nested in one another.

$ lein repl
user=> (use 'table.core)
nil

; These three yields the same table
user=> (table [["1" "2"] ["3" "4"]])
user=> (table '((1 2) (3 4)))
user=> (table #{[1 2] [3 4]})
+---+---+
| 1 | 2 |
+---+---+
| 3 | 4 |
+---+---+

user=> (table [{:a 11} {:a 3 :b 22}])
+----+----+
| a  | b  |
+----+----+
| 11 |    |
| 3  | 22 |
+----+----+

table can render different styles of tables:

user=> (table [ [1 2] [3 4]] :style :unicode)
┌───┬───┐
│ 1 │ 2 │
├───┼───┤
│ 3 ╎ 4 │
└───┴───┘

user=> (table [ [1 2] [3 4]] :style :org)
|---+---|
| 1 | 2 |
|---+---|
| 3 | 4 |
|---+---|

# Yes, these will generate tables for github's markdown
user=> (table [ [10 20] [3 4]] :style :github-markdown)

| 10 | 20 |
|--- | ---|
| 3  | 4  |

table can also render custom styles:

user> (table [[10 20] [3 4]] :style {:top ["◤ " " ▼ " " ◥"]
                             :top-dash "✈︎"
                             :middle ["▶︎ " "   " " ◀︎"]
                             :dash "✂︎"
                             :bottom ["◣ " " ▲ " " ◢"]
                             :bottom-dash "☺︎"
                             :header-walls ["  " "   " "  "]
                             :body-walls ["  " "   " "  "] })
◤ ✈︎✈︎ ▼ ✈︎✈︎ ◥
  10   20
▶︎ ✂︎✂︎   ✂︎✂︎ ◀︎
  3    4
◣ ☺︎☺︎ ▲ ☺︎☺︎ ◢

table can handle plain maps and vectors of course:

user=> (table (meta #'doc))
+-----------+---------------------------------------------------------------+
| key       | value                                                         |
+-----------+---------------------------------------------------------------+
| :macro    | true                                                          |
| :ns       | clojure.repl                                                  |
| :name     | doc                                                           |
| :arglists | ([name])                                                      |
| :added    | 1.0                                                           |
| :doc      | Prints documentation for a var or special form given its name |
| :line     | 120                                                           |
| :file     | clojure/repl.clj                                              |
+-----------+---------------------------------------------------------------+

user=> (table (seq (.getURLs (java.lang.ClassLoader/getSystemClassLoader))))
+--------------------------------------------------+
| value                                            |

Configuration

If your terminal width isn't being auto-detected, you can execute this in your shell before using the repl: export COLUMNS. Alternatively you can bind/alter table.width/*width* to your desired width.

Similar libraries

  • Clojure 1.5.0 comes with a similar function clojure.pprint/print-table
  • doric is more full-featured than print-table, supporting formats other than text. But it lacks support for handling many data structures and tests are weak.

table improves on these by rendering more data structures, supporting different ascii style tables and resizing to fit your terminal.

Bugs/Issues

Please report them on github.

TODO

  • Set default style
  • Handle no rows
  • Handle vecs with different sizes
  • Look into auto-rendering database results in reply repl
  • Escape tabs
