Rake TUI Demo

Other TUI gems you may be interested in:

Pre-requisites

Setup Instructions

Vanilla Ruby

gem install rake-tui

Bundler

gem 'rake-tui', require: false

RVM

rvm @global do gem install rake-tui

Usage

Simply run this command:

rakeui

Or one of the aliases:

rake-ui
raketui
rake-tui

JRuby

If you are using RVM, then rake-tui works in JRuby too.

Otherwise, simply run this command instead:

jrakeui

Or one of the aliases:

jrake-ui
jraketui
jrake-tui

API

To use rake-tui as part of a Ruby app, require the rake-tui gem once at the top of your code:

require 'rake-tui'

Afterwards, simply invoke the Rake::TUI.run method wherever you need to display the TUI to the user:

Rake::TUI.run

If you'd rather specify or limit the tasks shown, then pass the tasks to the constructor before running:

Rake::TUI.new(tasks).run

If you want to make that the default, then set the singleton instance:

Rake::TUI.instance(Rake::TUI.new(tasks))
Rake::TUI.run # this now displays the specified task list

Options

branding_header

The default branding header looks like this (from Rake::TUI::BRANDING_HEADER_DEFAULT):

== rake-tui version 0.2.3 ==

It may be customized by passing in the branding_header option (removed when set to nil).

Example:

Rake::TUI.run(branding_header: '== Glimmer (Ruby Desktop Development GUI Library) ==')

Output:

== Glimmer (Ruby Desktop Development GUI Library) ==

prompt_question

The prompt question is the text that shows up before the help message and looks like this (from Rake::TUI::PROMPT_QUESTION_DEFAULT):

Choose a Rake task:

It may be customized by passing in the prompt_question option:

Example:

Rake::TUI.run(prompt_question: 'Select a Glimmer task:')

Output:

Select a Glimmer task:  (Press ↑/↓ arrow to move, Enter to select and letters to filter)

task_formatter block

The task formatter (default: Rake::TUI::TASK_FORMATTER_DEFAULT) is responsible for formatting tasks into task lines presented as choices to the user.

It receives task and tasks list as options.

For example, by default, it prints the same standard output you see from running rake -T:

  rake build               # Build gem into pkg/
  rake clean               # Remove any temporary products
  rake clobber             # Remove any generated files
  rake clobber_rdoc        # Remove RDoc HTML files
  rake console[script]     # Start IRB with all runtime dependencies loaded
  rake gemcutter:release   # Release gem to Gemcutter
  rake gemspec             # Generate and validate gemspec
  rake gemspec:debug       # Display the gemspec for debugging purposes, as juwelier knows it (not from the filesystem)
  rake gemspec:generate    # Regenerate the gemspec on the filesystem
‣ rake gemspec:release     # Regenerate and validate gemspec, and then commits and pushes to git
  rake gemspec:validate    # Validates the gemspec on the filesystem
  rake git:release         # Tag and push release to git
  rake install             # Build and install gem using `gem install`
  rake rdoc                # Build RDoc HTML files
  rake release             # Release gem
  rake rerdoc              # Rebuild RDoc HTML files
  rake simplecov           # Code coverage detail
  rake spec                # Run RSpec code examples
  rake version             # Displays the current version
  rake version:bump:major  # Bump the major version by 1
  rake version:bump:minor  # Bump the a minor version by 1
  rake version:bump:patch  # Bump the patch version by 1
  rake version:write       # Writes out an explicit version

However, it can be customized by passing in a task_formatter block.

Example:

Rake::TUI.new.run { |task, tasks| task.name_with_args }

Output:

  build
  clean
  clobber
  clobber_rdoc
  console[script]
  gemcutter:release
  gemspec
  gemspec:debug
  gemspec:generate
  gemspec:release
  gemspec:validate
  git:release
  install
  rdoc
‣ release
  rerdoc
  simplecov
  spec
  version
  version:bump:major
  version:bump:minor
  version:bump:patch
  version:write

Contributing to rake-tui

  • Check out the latest master to make sure the feature hasn't been implemented or the bug hasn't been fixed yet.
  • Check out the issue tracker to make sure someone already hasn't requested it and/or contributed it.
  • Fork the project.
  • Start a feature/bugfix branch.
  • Commit and push until you are happy with your contribution.
  • Make sure to add tests for it. This is important so I don't break it in a future version unintentionally.
  • Please try not to mess with the Rakefile, version, or history. If you want to have your own version, or is otherwise necessary, that is fine, but please isolate to its own commit so I can cherry-pick around it.
