prettyjson Build Status

Package for formatting JSON data in a coloured YAML-style, perfect for CLI output

How to install

The easiest way is by installing it from the npm repository:

$ npm install prettyjson

If you'd prefer to install the latest master version of prettyjson, you can clone the GitHub source repository and then install it using npm:

$ git clone "https://github.com/rafeca/prettyjson.git"

$ npm install -g prettyjson/

How to use it

It's pretty easy to use it... you just have to include it in your script and call the render() method:

var prettyjson = require('prettyjson');

var data = {
  username: 'rafeca',
  url: 'https://github.com/rafeca',
  twitter_account: 'https://twitter.com/rafeca',
  projects: ['prettyprint', 'connfu']
};

console.log(prettyjson.render(data));

And will output:

Example 1

You can also configure the colors of the hash keys and array dashes (using colors.js colors syntax):

var prettyjson = require('prettyjson');

var data = {
  username: 'rafeca',
  url: 'https://github.com/rafeca',
  twitter_account: 'https://twitter.com/rafeca',
  projects: ['prettyprint', 'connfu']
};

console.log(prettyjson.render(data, {
  keysColor: 'rainbow', 
  dashColor: 'magenta'
}));

Will output something like:
