Tabulator: format tables with Python

Project page:

I've been using this module for ages now but have only now got around to releasing it. It makes it dead-simple to print nicely formatted tables in plaintext and other formats, and I'll add gradually.

If you ever find yourself iterating lists to find the longest member in order to correctly format the column, then this is for you.

There's a simple example on the project page to you get started. Just ask if anything is unclear.

Part of a larger table as an example:

                         Quantity                                Value         Uncertainty      Unit
