256 Colors Foreground (text):

256 Colors Background:

Installation

$ pip install colored --upgrade

$ pip uninstall colored

Dependencies

None, only Python progmamming language.

Usage Examples

How to use the module in your own python code:

>>> from colored import fg, bg, attr
>>>
>>> print ('%s Hello World !!! %s' % (fg(1), attr(0)))
 Hello World !!!
>>>
>>> print ('%s%s Hello World !!! %s' % (fg(1), bg(15), attr(0)))
 Hello World !!!

Use description:

>>> print ('%s%s Hello World !!! %s' % (fg('white'), bg('yellow'), attr('reset')))
 Hello World !!!
>>>
>>> print ('%s%s Hello World !!! %s' % (fg('orchid'), attr('bold'), attr('reset')))
 Hello World !!!
>>>
>>> color = bg('indian_red_1a') + fg('white')
>>> reset = attr('reset')
>>> print (color + 'Hello World !!!' + reset)
Hello World !!!

Or use HEX code:

>>> color = fg('#C0C0C0') + bg('#00005f')
>>> res = attr('reset')
>>> print (color + "Hello World !!!" + res)
Hello World !!!

Or the convenient stylize(text, *styles) wrapper to save some keystrokes:

>>> import colored
>>> from colored import stylize
>>> print(stylize("This is green.", colored.fg("green")))
This is green.
>>> print("This is not.")
This is not.
>>> angry = colored.fg("red") + colored.attr("bold")
>>> print(stylize("This is angry text.", angry))
This is angry text.
>>> print(stylize("This is VERY angry text.", angry, colored.attr("underlined")))
This is VERY angry text.
>>> print("But this is not.")
But this is not.

Use directly like colorama but with more colors:

>>> from colored import fore, back, style
>>>
>>> print (fore.LIGHT_BLUE + back.RED + style.BOLD + "Hello World !!!" + style.RESET)

Import colored module:

>>> import colored
>>>
>>> colored.fg(1)
'\x1b[38;5;1m'
>>>
>>> colored.fg(257)
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<input>", line 1, in <module>
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.7/site-packages/colored/colored.py", line 381, in fg
    return colored(color).foreground()
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.7/site-packages/colored/colored.py", line 350, in foreground
    color = self.reserve_paint[str(self.color)]
KeyError: '257'
>>>
>>> colored.bg(30)
'\x1b[48;5;30m'
>>>
>>> colored.fore.BLUE
'\x1b[38;5;4m'

 etc.
