Python module to style terminal output, moving and positioning the cursor.

Python 2 and 3 compatible

alt text

Installation

Install through pip.

$ pip install py-term

or get from source

$ git clone https://github.com/gravmatt/py-term.git
$ cd py-term
$ python setup.py install

Import module

Import the module into your python project.

import term

Usage

term.write('Hello, ')
term.write('Python!')

> Hello, Python!

term.writeLine('Hello')
term.writeLine('Python!')

> Hello
> Python!

Style output

The first argument is the text output and all following arguments are for styling.

term.writeLine(text, *style)

Or

text = term.format(text, *style)
term.writeLine(text)

Usage

term.writeLine('Hello, Python!')

term.writeLine('This text line will be green', term.green)

term.writeLine('Reverse the green color', term.green, term.reverse)

Or

output = term.format('Hello, ', term.green) + term.format('Python!', term.blue, term.bold)

term.writeLine(output)

term.write(term.format('All in one line', term.reverse))

Text align

Center align

# term.textCenter(text)

term.writeLine(term.textCenter('Super Python!'))

Right align

# term.textRight(text)

term.writeLine(term.textRight('Rene Tanczos (@gravmatt)'))

( Function term.right() to align text is depricated because of naming conflicts! )

Remove style attributes

Removes style characters.

(Good to call before you count a string)

term.strip(formatted_text)

hello = term.red + 'hello, world' + term.off
print hello
# '\x1b[31mhello, world\x1b[0m\x1b[27m'

print term.strip(hello)
# hello, world

Highlighting text

Simple highlighting of unformatted text strings

def callback(matching_text):
  return term.blue + matching_text + term.off

output, match_count, array_of_positions = term.highlight(regex_pattern, text, callback)

Return a tuple.

output (index 0) = formatted text output

match_count (index 1) = match count of the pattern

array_of_positions (index 2) = array of tuples with start and stop points of the matches [(4, 6), (9, 11), ..]

Set title

term.setTitle('Hello Terminal')

# or clear it

term.clearTitle()

Set tab name

term.setTab('Hello Tab')

# or clear it

term.clearTab()

Cursor position

Move the cursor to a specific position.

term.pos(line, column)

term.pos(2, 15)

Get the size of the terminal (lines and columns)

(30, 100) = term.getSize()

# (lines, colums) = term.getSize()

Move the cursor to the home position (1, 1).

term.homePos()

Moves the current cursor position up, down, left or right by the specified value.

term.up(value=1)
term.down(value=1)
term.left(value=1)
term.right(value=1)

Saves the current cursor position.

term.saveCursor()

Restore the previously stored cursor position.

term.restoreCursor()

Clear the terminal screen.

term.clear()

Clear the entire line on the current cursor position.

term.clearLine()

Clear line from the current cursor position to the end.

term.clearLineFromPos()

Clear line from begin to current cursor position.

term.clearLineToPos()
