Unicode class with automatic (light/dark background) terminal colors support.

Project description

Yet another ANSI color text library for Python. Provides “auto colors” for dark/light terminals.

In Python2.x this library subclasses unicode, while on Python3.x it subclasses str. colorclass is supported on Python 2.6, 2.7, 3.3, and 3.4.

Quickstart

Install:

pip install colorclass

Example Implementation

Example Script Screenshot

Source code for the example code is: example.py

Usage

Different colors are chosen using curly-bracket tags, such as {red}{/red}. For a list of available colors, call colorclass.list_tags().

The available “auto colors” tags are:

  • autoblack
  • autored
  • autogreen
  • autoyellow
  • autoblue
  • automagenta
  • autocyan
  • autowhite

Methods of Class instances try to return sane data, such as:

from colorclass import Color
color_string = Color('{red}Test{/red}')

color_string
u'\x1b[31mTest\x1b[39m'

len(color_string)
4

color_string.istitle()
True

There are also a couple of helper attributes for all Color instances:

color_string.value_colors
'\x1b[31mTest\x1b[39m'

color_string.value_no_colors
'Test'
