Python Table Printer

Project description


Print a list of python dicts as an organized table.

The code is mostly copied from this Stack Overflow comment with the following additions: - customization of the top and bottom line characters - customization of the alignment (‘left’ or ‘right’) - automatic truncation of text that is longer than the column width with ellipses (’…’) - ability to receive a separate data set that will be printed as a totals row at the bottom of the table by passing optional argument


pip install table_printer


from table_printer import TablePrinter

fmt = [
  ('Title',         'title',        50, 'left'),
  ('Description',   'description',  50, 'right'),
data = [{'title': 'Hello', 'description': 'World'}]
totals = {'title': 'TOTAL', '1 title'}
print TablePrinter(fmt, sep='|', ul='=', tl='-', bl='_')(data, totals)


Title                                             |                                       Description
Hello                                             |                                             World
TOTAL                                             |                                           1 title
