A view wrapper for gyscos/cursive views which aligns child views

This project provides an AlignedView for gyscos/cursive views which makes it possible to align the child view (center, left, right, top, bottom). The AlignedView uses the required_size reported by the child view and fills the rest of the available space with the views background color.

How does it look like? demo terminalizer

Simply add to your Cargo.toml

cursive-aligned-view = "^0"

Aligning a child view

The easiest way to align a view is via the Alignable trait:

use cursive_aligned_view::Alignable;

let aligned = child_view.align_center();

This is the preferred way as it is chainable and consistent with cursive's Boxable and Identifiable traits.

As an alternative you can use the AlignedView constructors directly:

use cursive_aligned_view::AlignedView;

let aligned = AlignedView::with_center(child_view);

Look into the documentation for a detailed explanation on the API.

Development cargo test

Running the tests

Preparing integration tests

To perform the test it's advisable to install cargo-insta in case your tests fail and you want to inspect the received output.

$ cargo install cargo-insta

You will also need insta to validate new tests you add or update older ones.

Running all test suites

Just run

$ cargo test

to execute all available tests.

Or if you want to interactively inspect failed tests

$ cargo insta test endpoints endpoints are generated inside the ./target/shields folder. They are used in this README.
