wlog alternatives and similar packages
Based on the "Standard CLI" category
Do you think we are missing an alternative of wlog or a related project?
Package wlog creates simple to use UI structure. The UI is used to simply print to the screen. There a wrappers that will wrap each other to create a good looking UI. You can add color and prefixes as well as make it thread safe.
Idea Behind WLog
I used Mitchellh's CLI structure and wrapping for the different structures. It was a clean look and feel. Plus it was pretty simple to use. But I didn't want all the other cli stuff that came with the package so I created this.
For color I use DavidDenGCN's Go-ColorText. His color package allows for color that is available cross-platforms. I made a wrapper with all possible color combinations with his package. So you only have to import this package (one less line).
var ui UI reader := strings.NewReader("User Input\r\n") //Simulate user typing "User Input" then pressing [enter] when reading from os.Stdin ui = New(reader, os.Stdout, os.Stdout) ui = AddPrefix("?", Cross, " ", "", "", "~", Check, "!", ui) ui = AddConcurrent(ui) ui.Ask("Ask question", "") ui.Error("Error message") ui.Info("Info message") ui.Output("Output message") ui.Running("Running message") ui.Success("Success message") ui.Warn("Warning message")
? Ask question ✗ Error message Info message Output message ~ Running message ✓ Success message ! Warning message
On Windows it outputs to this (this includes color):
