What is This?

Travis CI

Pluggable Output Processor is an engine to wrap any executabe and capture its output through a pluggable module to colorize it and/or (re)format.

Features

  • easy (to Python programmers ;-) to extend
  • 256 color terminal support ;-) configuration files in addition to standard named colors may contain color definitions as rgb(r,g,b) or gray(n)
  • colorizers for make, cmake, gcc out of the box (more to come ;-)
  • some modules are not just a stupid colorizers ;-) For example gcc can reformat text for better readability (really helps to understand template errors). Also cmake module can reduce amount of lines printed during test by collapsing test intro message and result into a single one.

Installation

Easy!

$ pip install outproc

For Gentoo users there is a live ebuild in my repository. Also (for Gentoo users again ;-) eselect module from contrib/ will be installed by the ebuild. Users of other distros have to make symlinks to required modules manually (replace <install-prefix> with your actual path):

$ ln -s <install-prefix>/bin/outproc /usr/lib/outproc/bin/<module-name>

and then make sure /usr/lib/outproc/bin placed before /usr/bin (and anything else) in your user/system PATH environment. The path /usr/lib/outproc/bin is just an example. You can choose whatever you like instead (e.g. /home/<login>/.local/bin/ for user based install layout). List of available modules (plugins) can be obtained from command:

$ outproc -l
List of available modules:
  c++
  cc
  cmake
  diff
  g++
  gcc
  make
  mount

For example, to install the make module do the following:

$ ln -s <install-prefix>/bin/outproc /usr/lib/outproc/bin/make

Then you may edit /etc/outproc/make.conf to adjust color settings. Note that gcc, g++, cc and c++ are the same module actually (named after typical GCC executables) and use the same /etc/outproc/gcc.conf config file.
