GitHub file size in bytes PyPI version


Inspired & Python Port of cli-badges - nombrekeff

Getting Started

Installing

As usual, you need to install from PIP:

$ pip install cli-badges

Usage

This is a simple example, using badges to display test results:

from cli_badges import badge

failedBadge = badge("failed",'2',messagebg='red')
skippedBadge = badge('skipped', '1', messagebg='yellow',messagecolor='black')
successBadge = badge('success','8', messagebg='green',messagecolor='black')


print(failedBadge, successBadge, skippedBadge)

The above would output something similar to the terminal:

You could also create a donate badge with a link (if supported):

from cli_badges import badge

donateBadge = badge('❤️ donate', 'ko-fi', messagelink='https://ko-fi.com/logginjs');
print(donateBadge)

You can also only show the label:

from cli_badges import badge

onlyLabel = badge('❤️ donate', '')
print(onlyLabel)

Example output is a mock, console output will vary slightly from terminal to terminal.

Themes

theme-image

Themes are a way to store badge configuration for repeated use. All the options (except for the theme option, obviously) that are needed by the badge can be stored by making a theme.
The library comes with a set of inbuilt themes, but you can also define your own

Inbuilt Themes

  • red : Red Message Background
  • green : Green Message Background
  • yellow : Black Colored Message on Yellow Background
  • cyan : Black Colored Message on Cyan Background
  • magenta : Black Colored Message on Magenta Background
  • success : 'Success' Message on Green Background
  • failed : 'Failed' Message on Red Background

Using Themes

THEME stores all the available themes, and has to be passed to the badge() functions theme argument. Arguments present in the theme will override the passed arguments. Missing arguments will have default values

from cli_badges import badge,THEME
red_badge = badge('Red','Badge',theme=THEME.red)
print(red_badge)

Adding New Themes

  1. Directly in Code
    To add a Theme directly, add_theme(name,config) function is used. name is the name of the theme, config is a dict containing the required options

    from cli_badges import badge,add_theme, THEME
    add_theme('donate',{
        'label': '❤️ donate'
    })
    donate_badge = badge(message='kofi',theme=THEME.donate)
    print(donate_badge)
    
  2. From a JSON File
    You can store the Theme configurations in a json file and load them using load_themes(file) function where file is the Theme json file

    # themes.json
    {
        "redblue": {
            "messagebg": "blue",
            "labelbg":"red",
            "messagestyles": ["bold"]
        }
    }
    
    from cli_badges import badge, load_themes, THEME
    load_themes(open("themes.json","r"))
    redblue_badge = badge('RED','BLUE',theme=THEME.redblue)
    print(redblue_badge)
    

Swapping Styles

The swap option is used to apply the message styles to the label and vice-versa

from cli_badges import badge
normal_badge = badge('RED','BLUE',labelbg='red', messagebg='blue')
swapped_badge = badge('RED','BLUE',labelbg='red', messagebg='blue',swap=True)
print(normal_badge,swapped_badge)
