uitable GoDoc Build Status

uitable is a go library for representing data as tables for terminal applications. It provides primitives for sizing and wrapping columns to improve readability.

Example Usage

Full source code for the example is available at example/main.go

table := uitable.New()
table.MaxColWidth = 50

table.AddRow("NAME", "BIRTHDAY", "BIO")
for _, hacker := range hackers {
  table.AddRow(hacker.Name, hacker.Birthday, hacker.Bio)
}
fmt.Println(table)

Will render the data as:

NAME          BIRTHDAY          BIO
Ada Lovelace  December 10, 1815 Ada was a British mathematician and writer, chi...
Alan Turing   June 23, 1912     Alan was a British pioneering computer scientis...

For wrapping in two columns:

table = uitable.New()
table.MaxColWidth = 80
table.Wrap = true // wrap columns

for _, hacker := range hackers {
  table.AddRow("Name:", hacker.Name)
  table.AddRow("Birthday:", hacker.Birthday)
  table.AddRow("Bio:", hacker.Bio)
  table.AddRow("") // blank
}
fmt.Println(table)

Will render the data as:

Name:     Ada Lovelace
Birthday: December 10, 1815
Bio:      Ada was a British mathematician and writer, chiefly known for her work on
          Charles Babbage's early mechanical general-purpose computer, the Analytical
          Engine

Name:     Alan Turing
Birthday: June 23, 1912
Bio:      Alan was a British pioneering computer scientist, mathematician, logician,
          cryptanalyst and theoretical biologist
