About

Tabulator is a table formatter class that can output tables in a variety of formats. I wrote it because I found myself rewriting code to align tables far too often.

I will add output formats as I need them, but feel free to submit/suggest new ones or improvements on existing ones.

Output Formats

  • plaintext
  • XHTML
  • boxdrawn
  • markdown

See the TODO list below to see what else I have in mind.

Caveats

The API is relatively stable but I guarantee nothing. Keep a local copy and include that in your projects if you need to be sure.

Examples

Basic Example

#!/usr/bin/env python3

"""
This is quick example of how to work with Tabulator.
"""

from Tabulator import Tabulator

# The first row optionally contains the headers.
rows = [('Dec', 'Bin', 'Oct', 'Hex')]

# Collect some data in the rows.
for i in range(20):
  rows.append((i, bin(i)[2:], oct(i)[2:], hex(i)[2:]))

# To indicate that the first row contains headers, a header alignment parameter
# must be passed.
tab = Tabulator(rows, headers=('c',), cols=('r',))

print(tab.to_box_table())
