Pretty Printing data structuresλ︎
Data structures containing small amounts of data are quite human readable, although can benefit from pretty printing to make them very easy for humans to read.
The larger a data structure becomes, or if a data structure is nested, then there are tools to print out ascii views of the data structures.
Pretty print hash-mapsλ︎
Each key is printed on a new line, making the hash-map easier to read, especially when there are a large number of keys
Clojure aware editors can also have an align option when formatting hash-maps, making the results easier to read
Hint::Pretty Print evaluation resultsλ︎
Clojure aware editors should allow the pretty printing of the evaluation results.
Print Table of nested data structuresλ︎
Nested data structures can also be shown as a table, especially the common approach of using a vector of hash-maps where each map has the same keys
Data browsers (Cider Inspector, Portal, Reveal Free) are very useful for larger and nested data structures.
