Documentation

lazer-rs

Console printer with a fluent API, written in Rust.

lazer

Lazer is a utility for printing to the console using a fluent API. Ported to Rust from the original TypeScript package.

Description

Lazer helps you build, format and print complex messages to the console using an expressive fluent API.

Usage

Simple Example

main.rs

use lazer::{lazer};

fn main() {
    lazer()
        .print("Hello,")
        .print_space()
        .print_green("Green World")
        .print_ln("!");
}
$ cargo run
Hello, Green World!

Complex Example

use lazer::{lazer};

fn main() {
    let remote_addr = "127.0.0.1";
    let method = "GET";
    let path = "/a/really/really/really/long/path/here";
    let status = 200;
    let time_ms = 20;
    let size_bytes_string = "1.10kB";

    lazer()
        .print("[").print_utc_time().print("]")
        .print_space(1).print("-").print_space(1)
        .print_pad_right(remote_addr, 15, "_")
        .print_space(2)
        .print_pad_right(method, 4, "_")
        .print_space(2)
        .print_pad_right(path, 20, "_")
        .print_space(2)
        .iff(status >= 200 && status < 300)
            .print_green(&status.to_string())
        .eliff(status >= 300 && status < 400)
            .print_yellow(&status.to_string())
        .eliff(status >= 400)
            .print_red(&status.to_string())
        .end()
        .print_space(2)
        .print_pad_right(&format!("{}ms", time_ms), 6, "_")
        .print_space(2)
        .print_ln(size_bytes_string);
}
$ deno run example.ts
[] - 127.0.0.1_______  GET__  /a/really/really/r+18  200  20ms___  1.10kB

Buffering Example

import { lazer } from "https://deno.land/x/lazer/mod.ts"

const getLinePrefix = () => 
{
    return lazer().buffer()
        .print_yellow('[').print_yellow("Line Prefix").print_yellow(']')
        .print_space().print("-").print_space()
        .print_yellow('[').set_color_yellow().print_utc_time().print_yellow(']')
        .print_space().print("-").print_space()
        .return();
}

lazer()
    .print(getLinePrefix())
    .print_yellow_ln("This is a prefixed line of text output");

lazer()
    .print(getLinePrefix())
    .print_yellow_ln("This is another prefixed line of text output");
$ deno run example.ts
[Line Prefix] - [Mon, 10 May 2021 16:31:29 GMT] - This is a prefixed line of text output
[Line Prefix] - [Mon, 10 May 2021 16:31:29 GMT] - This is another prefixed line of text output

Buffer Aliasing Example

import { lazer } from "https://deno.land/x/lazer/mod.ts"

lazer().buffer()
    .set_color_red().print_ln("Some red output to buffer")
    .store('i am an alias');

lazer().buffer()
    .load('i am an alias')
    .print_b();
$ deno run example.ts
Some red output to buffer
