Description

With this module you can produce amazing looking tables, colorized strings and others transformations for output to the terminal screen. While this module is mainly for bolt plans it could be used in puppet code anywhere.

Setup

What format affects

This module includes functions and datatypes only.

Setup Requirements

Bolt and Puppet

Usage

This module only contains functions to format and transform data. It will not output anything to stdout and only return formatted data ready to be sent to stdout or stderr.

Functions

  • format::colorize("string", red) # options include red, green, yellow, fatal, warning, good.
  • format::table([['one', 1], ['two', 2]])

The print_table function wraps the Terminal-Table ruby gem in a function and tries to provide the same API. You can create a table in two ways.

  • by passing a TableRows type (Array of Arrays)
  • by passing a TerminalTable type (Hash of various keys)

Example:

# puppet code
format::table({title => 'GPU list', head => ['Name', 'QTY'],
               rows => [['GTX 1070', 5], ['GTX 2080 ti', 1]],
               style => {width => 60 }
            })

Which produces a table like:

+-----------------------------+----------------------------+
|                         GPU list                         |
+-----------------------------+----------------------------+
| Name                        | QTY                        |
+-----------------------------+----------------------------+
| GTX 1070                    | 5                          |
| GTX 2080 ti                 | 1                          |
+-----------------------------+----------------------------+
