Easily create terminal-based graphics to visualize the execution of your code. Whirled Peas offers templating inspired by HTML and CSS and provides a lightweight tie-in for your code to produce visual animations.

Installation

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'whirled_peas'

And then execute:

$ bundle install

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install whirled_peas

Usage

A Whirled Peas application consists of the following required pieces

  • The application - the code that is to be visualized, it dictates the frame contents and playback speed
  • The template factory - builds templates to convert frames from the application into terminal graphics

These pieces are configured as follows

# visualize.rb
require 'whirled_peas'

class TemplateFactory
  def build(frame, args)
    WhirledPeas.template do |composer|
      composer.add_box('Title') do |_, settings|
        settings.underline = true
        "Hello #{args[:name]}"
      end
      # ...
    end
  end
end

class Application
  def start(producer)
    producer.add_frame('starting', args: { name: 'World' })
    # ...
  end
end

WhirledPeas.configure do |config|
  config.application = Application.new
  config.template_factory = TemplateFactory.new
end

Then the visualizer is started on the command line with

$ whirled_peas play visualize.rb

Development

After checking out the repo, run bin/setup to install dependencies. Then, run bundle exec rake to run the tests. You can also run bin/console for an interactive prompt that will allow you to experiment.

Tests inclued standard RSpec tests for application logic as well as custom screen tests to validate the rendered graphics.

To install this gem onto your local machine, run bundle exec rake install. To release a new version, update the version number in version.rb, and then run bundle exec rake release, which will create a git tag for the version, push git commits and tags, and push the .gem file to rubygems.org.
