GUI presentation of data

Project description

An application insipired by PowerShell’s Out-GridView .

Implemented on Gnome using GTK

Input is passed via STDIN or via filenames in argument. Every file is assigned a window and a thread in charge of reading that file and parsing it.

Also check out my post on it:


These different types of input formatting are currently supported:

  • autosplit (default), which uses re.split to create different columns from every row.

    Default separator is \s+ which is good for space-separated items.

    Separator can contains capturing groups for interesting results

  • csv, with configurable column separators

  • line_json, where every line is considered a single JSON object (Line delimited JSON)

Items are displayed immediately when parsed

Additional features

  • Clipboard support. Copies as CSV to allow easy pasting in spreadsheet software
  • Simple text filtering


  • act as pipeline middle (and not just terminator), meaning that you can select items and click “OK” to make it send the items to STDOUT
  • Support advanced filtering (e.g. regex, specific columns)
  • Support hiding and re-ordering columns
  • show progress icon when stdin isn’t EOF yet
