Add custom cli style to a vector


cli_vec(x, style = list())



Vector that will be collapsed by cli.


Style to apply to the vector. It is used as a theme on a span element that is created for the vector. You can set vec_sep and vec_last to modify the sep and last arguments of glue::glue_collapse(). See an example below.


You can use this function to change the default parameters of glue::glue_collapse(), see an example below.

The style is added as an attribute, so operations that remove attributes will remove the style as well.

Custom collapsing separator

v <- cli_vec(
  c("foo", "bar", "foobar"),
  style = list(vec_sep = " & ", vec_last = " & ")
cli_text("My list: {v}.")

Custom truncation

x <- cli_vec(names(mtcars), list(vec_trunc = 3))
cli_text("Column names: {x}.")
