rosfmt

rosfmt is a ROS wrapper around the awesome fmt library, which offers modern C++11 type-safe formatting strings.

TLDR: Instead of

#include <ros/console.h>

ROS_INFO("Here is my string: %s. And a number: %llu",
    my_string.c_str(), my_number
);

you can now write:

#include <rosfmt/rosfmt.h>

ROSFMT_INFO("Here is my string: {}. And a number: {}",
    my_string, my_number
);

For more complicated messages, you can use named arguments:

ROSFMT_INFO("Here is my string: {str}. And a number: {num}",
    fmt::arg("str", my_string),
    fmt::arg("num", my_number)
);

Of course, you can also use fmt's API directly:

std::string str = fmt::format("my string: {}", my_string);

See the fmt documentation for more details about fmt's features. For example, you can easily define printing routines for your own data structures.

Usage

Just depend on the rosfmt catkin package as usual. One catch is that fmt requires C++11, so you need to enable that:

cmake_minimum_required(3.0)
project(my_package)

find_package(catkin REQUIRED COMPONENTS
    rosfmt
    roscpp
    rosconsole # might be required in older versions of rosfmt
)

catkin_package()
include_directories(${catkin_INCLUDE_DIRS})

# Important: enable C++11
set(CMAKE_CXX_STANDARD 11)

add_executable(my_node
    src/my_node.cpp
)
target_link_libraries(my_node
    ${catkin_LIBRARIES}
)
