README

table

Formats lines of TSV, CSV, or DSV (delimiter-separated values) into a pretty plain text table, wrappings cells with long content to try to fit the table in the screen.

Install

Assuming you have a recent version of the Haskell platform on your system,

cabal update
cabal install table

Usage

table

Usage: table ([-d DELIM] | [-s]) [-c] [-R] [-H] [-w WIDTH]
  Pretty format TSV input into table with aligned and wrapped cells

Available options:
  -h,--help                Show this help text
  -d DELIM                 Input field delimiter. Default is TAB (\t).
  -s                       Use any run of whitespace as input field delimiter
  -c                       Parse input as CSV
  -R                       Don't print row dividers
  -H                       Print header row divider
  -w WIDTH                 Max table width. Defaults to value of `tput cols`
                           command.

Example

Format Rails issues from the GitHub API into a table. This example uses jq and jsontsv to transform the GitHub API JSON into tab separated values before piping that data into table:

curl -s "https://api.github.com/repos/rails/rails/issues" | 
jq -M '.[]' | 
jsontsv -H 'number title user.login:user state' |
table

Outputs this when the terminal width is 72 characters:

You can use table to pretty-format TSV output from mysql, psql, or sqlite3 as well, especially when you need row cell content to wrap to fit everything nicely on the screen or printout.
