NAME

Data::Format::Pretty::HTML - Pretty-print data structure for HTML output

VERSION

version 0.08

SYNOPSIS

In your program:

 use Data::Format::Pretty::HTML qw(format_pretty);
 ...
 print format_pretty($result);

Some example output:

Scalar, format_pretty("foo & bar"):

 foo & bar

Scalar multiline, format_pretty("foo\nbar\nbaz"):

 <pre>foo
 bar
 baz</pre>

List, format_pretty([qw/foo bar baz qux/]):

 <table>
   <tr><td>foo</td></tr>
   <tr><td>bar</td></tr>
   <tr><td>baz</td></tr>
   <tr><td>qux</td></tr>
 </table>

Hash, format_pretty({foo=>"data",bar=>"format",baz=>"pretty",qux=>"html"}):

 <table>
   <tr><th>key</th><th>value</th></tr>
   <tr><td>bar</td><td>format</td></tr>
   <tr><td>baz</td><td>pretty</td></tr>
   <tr><td>foo</td><td>data</td></tr>
   <tr><td>qux</td><td>html</td></tr>
 </table>

2-dimensional array, format_pretty([ [1, 2, ""], [28, "bar", 3], ["foo", 3, undef] ]):

 <table>
   <tr><th>column0</th><th>column1</th><th>column2</th></tr>
   <tr><td class="number">1</td><td class="number">2</td><td></td></tr>
   <tr><td class="number">28</td><td>bar</td><td class="number">3</td></tr>
   <tr><td>foo</td><td class="number">3</td><td></td></tr>
 </table>

An array of hashrefs, such as commonly found if you use DBI's fetchrow_hashref() and friends, format_pretty([ {a=>1, b=>2}, {b=>2, c=>3}, {c=>4} ]):

 <table>
   <tr><th>a</th><th>b</th><th>c</th></tr>
   <tr><td class="number">1</td><td class="number">2</td><td></td></tr>
   <tr><td></td><td class="number">2</td><td class="number">3</td></tr>
   <tr><td></td><td></td><td class="number">4</td></tr>
 </table>

Some more complex data, format_pretty({summary => "Blah...", users => [{name=>"budi", domains=>["f.com", "b.com"], quota=>"1000"}, {name=>"arif", domains=>["baz.com"], quota=>"2000"}], verified => 0}):

 <table>

   <tr>
     <td>summary</td>
     <td>Blah...</td>
   </tr>

   <tr>
     <td>users</td>
     <td>
       <table>
         <tr><th>domains</th><th>name</th><th>quota</th></tr>
         <tr><td>f.com, b.com</td><td>budi</td><td class="number">1000</td></tr>
         <tr><td>baz.com</td><td>arif</td><td class="number">2000</td></tr>
     </td>
   </tr>

   <tr>
     <td>verified</td>
     <td class="number">0</td>
   </tr>

 </table>

Structures which can't be handled yet will simply be output as YAML, format_pretty({a => {b=>1}}):

 <pre>a:
   b: 1
 </pre>

DESCRIPTION

This module has the same spirit as Data::Format::Pretty::Console (and currently implemented as its subclass). The idea is to throw it some data structure and let it figure out how to best display the data in a pretty HTML format.

Differences with Data::Format::Pretty::Console:

  • hot (hash of table) structure is rendered as table of inner tables

This module uses Log::Any for logging.

FUNCTIONS

format_pretty($data, \%opts)

Return formatted data structure as HTML. Options:

  • table_column_orders => [[colname, colname], ...]

    See Data::Format::Pretty::Console for more details.

  • linkify_urls_in_text => BOOL

    Whether to convert 'http://foo' in text into '<a href="http://foo">http://foo</a>'. Default is true.
