A simple command line pager, written in Nim.
This project can be compiled into a binary using
nimble. However, its primary use is as a library. In your project, use it as follows:
import pager # assign some long string to longString page(longString)
This will split the value of
longString onto lines that can be stepped through with the following keys:
g: go to top
G: go to bottom
Ctrl-U: go up one-half of the screen
Ctrl-D: go down one-half of the screen
These keys can be customized by passing optional arguments to
page. See the function signature of
page for details.
pager was written for roman, and currently only has the flexibility and features required for that task. However, any patches or requests for extension would be welcome!
