Simple semantic functions for colorfull console messages

Project description


Semantically colorifies console output messages with ANSI codes.

The goal of the module is to centralize how console messages are printed depending on the intent. Instead of print() you can use:

  • step()
  • error()
  • warn()
  • success()
  • out()

Also fail() prints an error and exits.

All consolemsg functions, but out, output to sys.stderr, so they will be separated from your stdout when piping.

Extra arguments, will be inserted into the message with format.

For serious logging you should use the logging standard module. This is a quick and simple solution make the user aware of the relevance of the outputs.

Also those functions are Py2 backwards compatible, so you can use them instead of regular print to make your code portable.
