ANSI colors for Python

Project description

A simple module to add ANSI colors and decorations to your strings.

Example Usage

You can choose one of the 8 basic ANSI colors: black, red, green, yellow, blue, magenta, cyan, white.

from colors import red, green, blue
print red('This is red')
print green('This is green')
print blue('This is blue')

Optionally you can specify a background color.

print red('red on blue', bg='blue')
print green('green on black', bg='black')

You can additionally specify one of the supported styles: bold, faint, italic, underline, blink, blink2, negative, concealed, crossed. Not all styles are supported by all terminals.

from colors import bold, underline
print bold('This is bold')
print underline('underline red on blue', fg='red', bg='blue')
print green('bold green on black', bg='black', style='bold')

You can also use more than one styles at once.

print red('This is very important', style='bold+underline')

xterm-256 colors are supported as well, to use them give an integer instead of a color name.

from colors import color
for i in range(256):
    print color('Color #%d' % i, fg=i)

License

colors is licensed under the ISC license.
