Phiole - Φole

License Platform Language Issues Cocoapod

Simple object to wrap three NSFileHandle: 'output', 'error' to write and 'input' to read

There is of course a default instance for standard streams

let csl = Phiole.std

This object could be used in script or CLI application instead of using println(). This adds the following abilities :

  • Write to a file by declaring transparently an NSFileHandle as output stream
  • Write to error stream
  • Read from input stream

Swift scripts: How to write small command line scripts in Swift

⚠️ Phiole is not a login system. Use instead project like SLF4Swift

Usage

Write to ouput stream

csl.println("write string and pass to the new line")
csl.print("write string without new line")
csl.println() // write new line

Write to error stream

csl.errorln("write an error")

Read from user input

if line = csl.readLine() {
  // do something
}

Writing to a file

Create the file handle for writing (file must exist)

if let fileHandle = NSFileHandle(forWritingAtPath: "myoutput.file") { ..

Initialize the console object

var newCsl = csl.withOutput(fileHandle)
// or with more code
var newCsl = Phiole(input: input: Phiols.std.input,
                    output: fileHandle, error: Phiols.std.error)

Write as usual

newCsl.println("write to a file")
...

Finally don't forget to close the file handle at the end

fileHandle.closeFile()

Add some colors in terminal or xcode

You can manually add color with decorated method ( see PhioleColor.swift)

csl.println(Phiole.Color.green.fg("write in red"))

Or for all ouputs

csl.outputColor = .Green
csl.errorColor = .Red
... write here ...

// reset
csl.outputColor = .None
csl.errorColor = .None
// or deactivate
csl.colorize = false

Color shortcuts could be added as you can see in Phiole+Shortcut

For Xcode

XcodeColors is a simple plugin for Xcode, it allows you to use colors in the Xcode debugging console.

Full installation instructions can be found on the XcodeColors project page:
https://github.com/robbiehanson/XcodeColors

Then you must add environment variable XcodeColors = YES in your Scheme

More examples

In main.swift

Setup

Copy/Paste

Just copy/paste code with licence in your script, or import swift files or project in your CLI project

Using cocoapods

Add pod 'Phiole', :git => 'https://github.com/phimage/Phiole.git' to your Podfile and run pod install.

Add use_frameworks! to the end of the Podfile.
