Awesome Print is a Ruby library that pretty prints Ruby objects in full color
exposing their internal structure with proper indentation. Rails ActiveRecord
objects and usage within Rails templates are supported via included mixins.

__NOTE__: awesome_print v1.2.0 is the last release supporting Ruby versions
prior to v1.9.3 and Rails versions prior to v3.0. The upcoming awesome_print
v2.0 will *require* Ruby v1.9.3 or later and Rails v3.0 or later.

### Installation ###
    # Installing as Ruby gem
    $ gem install awesome_print

    # Cloning the repository
    $ git clone git://github.com/awesome-print/awesome_print.git

### Usage ###

```ruby
require "awesome_print"
ap object, options = {}
```

Default options:

```ruby
indent:        4,      # Number of spaces for indenting.
index:         true,   # Display array indices.
html:          false,  # Use ANSI color codes rather than HTML.
multiline:     true,   # Display in multiple lines.
plain:         false,  # Use colors.
raw:           false,  # Do not recursively format instance variables.
sort_keys:     false,  # Do not sort hash keys.
sort_vars:     true,   # Sort instance variables.
limit:         false,  # Limit arrays & hashes. Accepts bool or int.
ruby19_syntax: false,  # Use Ruby 1.9 hash syntax in output.
color: {
  args:       :pale,
  array:      :white,
  bigdecimal: :blue,
  class:      :yellow,
  date:       :greenish,
  falseclass: :red,
  integer:    :blue,
  float:      :blue,
  hash:       :pale,
  keyword:    :cyan,
  method:     :purpleish,
  nilclass:   :red,
  rational:   :blue,
  string:     :yellowish,
  struct:     :pale,
  symbol:     :cyanish,
  time:       :greenish,
  trueclass:  :green,
  variable:   :cyanish
}
```

Supported color names:

```ruby
:gray, :red, :green, :yellow, :blue, :purple, :cyan, :white
:black, :redish, :greenish, :yellowish, :blueish, :purpleish, :cyanish, :pale
```

Use `Object#ai` to return an ASCII encoded string:

```ruby
irb> "awesome print".ai
=> "\e[0;33m\"awesome print\"\e[0m"
```

### IRB integration ###
To use awesome_print as default formatter in irb and Rails console add the following
code to your ~/.irbrc file:

```ruby
require "awesome_print"
AwesomePrint.irb!
```

### PRY integration ###
If you miss awesome_print's way of formatting output, here's how you can use it in place
of the formatting which comes with pry. Add the following code to your ~/.pryrc:

```ruby
require "awesome_print"
AwesomePrint.pry!
```

### Logger Convenience Method ###
awesome_print adds the 'ap' method to the Logger and ActiveSupport::BufferedLogger classes
letting you call:

    logger.ap object

By default, this logs at the :debug level. You can override that globally with:

    :log_level => :info

in the custom defaults (see below). You can also override on a per call basis with:

    logger.ap object, :warn

### ActionView Convenience Method ###
awesome_print adds the 'ap' method to the ActionView::Base class making it available
within Rails templates. For example:

    <%= ap @accounts.first %>   # ERB
    != ap @accounts.first       # HAML

With other web frameworks (ex: in Sinatra templates) you can explicitly request HTML
formatting:

    <%= ap @accounts.first, :html => true %>
    
### String Convenience Methods ###
Use methods such as `.red` to set string color:

```ruby
irb> puts "red text".red
red text # (it's red)
```

### Setting Custom Defaults ###
You can set your own default options by creating ``.aprc`` file in your home
directory. Within that file assign your  defaults to ``AwesomePrint.defaults``.
For example:

```ruby
# ~/.aprc file.
AwesomePrint.defaults = {
  :indent => -2,
  :color => {
    :hash  => :pale,
    :class => :white
  }
}
```
