pp Go Go Reference

Colored pretty printer for Go language

Usage

Just call pp.Print().

import "github.com/k0kubun/pp"

m := map[string]string{"foo": "bar", "hello": "world"}
pp.Print(m)

API

fmt package-like functions are provided.

pp.Print()
pp.Println()
pp.Sprint()
pp.Fprintf()
// ...

You can also create own instances that do not interfere with the default printer:

mypp := pp.New()
mypp.SetOutput(os.Stderr)
mypp.Println()
// ...

Custom colors

If you require, you may change the colors (all or some) for syntax highlighting:

// Create a struct describing your scheme
scheme := pp.ColorScheme{
	Integer:       pp.Green | pp.Bold,
	Float:         pp.Black | pp.BackgroundWhite | pp.Bold,
	String:        pp.Yellow,
}

// Register it for usage
pp.SetColorScheme(scheme)

Look into ColorScheme struct for the field names.

If you would like to revert to the default highlighting, you may do so by calling pp.ResetColorScheme().

Out of the following color flags, you may combine any color with a background color and optionally with the bold parameter. Please note that bold will likely not work on the windows platform.
