Build Status

A collection of functions and classes to assist with command line development.

Requirements

  • PHP >= 5.3

Suggested PHP extensions

  • mbstring - Used for calculating string widths.

Function List

  • cli\out($msg, ...)
  • cli\out_padded($msg, ...)
  • cli\err($msg, ...)
  • cli\line($msg = '', ...)
  • cli\input()
  • cli\prompt($question, $default = false, $marker = ':')
  • cli\choose($question, $choices = 'yn', $default = 'n')
  • cli\menu($items, $default = false, $title = 'Choose an Item')

Progress Indicators

  • cli\notifier\Dots($msg, $dots = 3, $interval = 100)
  • cli\notifier\Spinner($msg, $interval = 100)
  • cli\progress\Bar($msg, $total, $interval = 100)

Tabular Display

  • cli\Table::__construct(array $headers = null, array $rows = null)
  • cli\Table::setHeaders(array $headers)
  • cli\Table::setRows(array $rows)
  • cli\Table::setRenderer(cli\table\Renderer $renderer)
  • cli\Table::addRow(array $row)
  • cli\Table::sort($column)
  • cli\Table::display()

The display function will detect if output is piped and, if it is, render a tab delimited table instead of the ASCII table rendered for visual display.

You can also explicitly set the renderer used by calling cli\Table::setRenderer() and giving it an instance of one of the concrete cli\table\Renderer classes.

Tree Display

  • cli\Tree::__construct()
  • cli\Tree::setData(array $data)
  • cli\Tree::setRenderer(cli\tree\Renderer $renderer)
  • cli\Tree::render()
  • cli\Tree::display()

Argument Parser

Argument parsing uses a simple framework for taking a list of command line arguments, usually straight from $_SERVER['argv'], and parses the input against a set of defined rules.

Check examples/arguments.php for an example.

Usage

See examples/ directory for examples.
