    From any JavaScript object, HTML tables create.

    description

    Given any Javascript object including Object, Array, Number, Date, null, undefined, primitives, etc, tableify generates HTML tables that represent each object. In the case of Arrays containing Objects (hash tables), it will generate a table with a header row containing the key names of the object found in the first element of the array.

    Every value to be output to the table is processed through tableify recursively so objects containing other objects will result in tables within tables.

    For each td cell that is created, a class is generated based on the constructor.name of the value, or null if the value is null.

    install

    npm install tableify

    usage

    var tableify = require('tableify');
     
    var html = tableify({
        someArrayOfObjects : [
            { a : 1, b : 2, c : 3  }
            , { a : 2, b : 3, c : 4 }
            , { a : 3, b : 4, c : 5 }
        ]
        , someObject : {
            key1 : 'value1'
            , someArray : [
                'value2'
                , 'value3'
                , 'value4'
                , 'value5'
            ]
            , someArrayOfObjects : [
                { key2 : 123 }
                , { key2 : 234 }
                , { key2 : 345 }
            ]
        }
    });
     
    console.log(html);

    command line usage

    When installed with npm install -g tableify you get the tablify command line utility. This is a simple command which accepts JSON from stdin and outputs html to stdout. I use it for emailing json files in a nice format for debugging purposes.

    The --style option prepends a <style> tag with some default css
