Example output

Using :console handler:

[ ] Command 1
  Log output 1
  [x] Command 2
  [ ] Command 3
    Log output 2
  [v] Command 3
[v] Command 1


Get the gem:

gem install rvm2-ui

Load it:

require 'rvm2/ui'


Different handlers can be loaded using pluginator group rvm2 type ui/output:

Rvm2::Ui.get(type = :console, rvm2_plugins = nil, *args)

the args will be passed to the handler constructor.

To get the default console output:

@ui = Rvm2::Ui.get

Wrapping code blocks

The command will produce checklist like item:

@ui.command('display name') do do_something end

Example output with :console output - before finish:

[ ] Group 1

after finish:

[v] Group 1

Logging output

The log allows giving messages, warnings and errors to user:

log(message, type = :log)

Supported types are :log, :warn, :warn_important, :error, any other type might be supported or should be handled as :log with the capitalized type as prefix.


@ui.log("something went wrong", :error)

Would produce with console:

Error: something went wrong

Handling extra outputs

In some cases like running shell commands an stdout and stderr objects are available with IO interface allowing proper output handling (not injecting text in random places):

@ui.command("test") do
  @ui.stderr.puts("debugging output")

would produce with :console:

[ ] test
  debugging output
[v] test

Combining multiple outputs

In some cases it might be useful to send the same output to different targets like UI and log:


Example use:

@ui = Rvm2::UI.multi
@ui.add(:log, "my_app.log")
@ui.remove # removes the last added logger

Example - temporarily use logger:

@ui = Rvm2::UI.multi
@ui.with(:log, "my_app.log") do

In both examples the output will be written to both standard output and log file.
