📜Fancy logs with expandable tools. Bring life to your terminal!
A module useful for CLI's, logs and pretty much any cool multi-line python tool.
Works with Python 2 and 3.
$ pip install draftlog
Here's about the simplest program with
draftlog that actually does something:
import draftlog import time draft = draftlog.inject() print ("The line below me will be updated!") update_me = draft.log("I will be updated!") print ("The line above me will be updated!") time.sleep(3) update_me.update("I've been updated!")
Here's a more complicated program: a scrolling banner . If you want to see some more examples in this thread, check out the
import draftlog draft = draftlog.inject() class Banner: def __init__(self, string): self.string = string self.counter = 0 def scroll(self): if self.counter >= 50: # This is what exits out of the loop in: # "draft.log().set_interval" raise draftlog.Exception self.counter += 1 self.string = self.string[1:] + self.string return self.string string = " Wow! Banners! This is so cool! All with draftlog! " print ("*" * len(string)) banner = draft.log() print ("*" * len(string)) banner.set_interval(Banner(string).scroll, 0.1) draft.start() # You can still print stuff after starting the draft as well: import time time.sleep(2) print ("Wow, some more text!")
set_interval is a function that takes another function and the time to wait. It overwrites the
draft.log() line with whatever the function returns. The function will stop being called once it
draft.start() will actually start all intervals that have been set.
draft.log() creates a
DraftLog object that keeps track of what line it was created on. You can call
update(text) on it to update the line that it's set on.
draft.log().set_interval(function, time) primes an interval in a background threading process called
draft.start() is called, it generates interval timing based off of the time specified and then runs it in "frames."
Since I've made the program open-ended, you can create a lot (see the
examples folder) of stuff.
