Print

Introduction

The Print Extension adds the PrintOutputHandler and PrintDictOutputHandler to render output in pure text. It is mostly intended for development, but also supports the additional app.print()extended function which can be used in place of the standard print() so that apps can continue to utilize features of the framework consistently (such as honoring pre_render and post_renderhooks, etc).

Usage

Example: Using Print Output Handler
Example: Using Print Output Handler
from cement import App
class MyApp(App):
class Meta:
label = 'myapp'
extensions = ['print']
with MyApp() as app:
app.run()
app.print('This is an output message')

Alternatively, you can use the print_dict output handler that can be useful in development as it simply just prints out a string representation of the data dict.

Example: Using Print Dict Output Handler
Example: Using Print Dict Output Handler
from cement import App
class MyApp(App):
class Meta:
label = 'myapp'
extensions = ['print_dict']
output_handler = 'print_dict'
with MyApp() as app:
app.run()
data = {
'foo' : 'bar',
}
app.render(data)
