Small package to facilitate colored terminal output.

Project description

Python module to facilitate effortless color terminal output.


Chromaprint requires Python 3.X.

Install via pip with pip install chromaprint


from chromaprint import print
print('green on magenta', fg='green', bg='magenta')

It’s that easy.

Chromaprint contains one property colors and two methods print and set_default.


chromaprint.colors is a tuple containing the names of all available colors. Attempts to use colors not in this tuple will raise an exception.


The print() method functions the same as Python’s built-in print method. Simply pass any strings you wish to print with the foreground color as fg='green' and background color as bg='magenta'. Color selections only apply to a single print, so the next print call will use the default colors. You can change the default colors using chromaprint.set_default()


A custom set of default colors may be specified and changed at will. Simply call set_default() using the same syntax as chromaprint.print(), ie chromaprint.set_default(bg='green', fg='magenta'). You may set either bg, fg, or both. To return to the system default color output pass bg='default', fg='default'
