A tool for creating colorful, formatted command line output

Project description


Build Status Code Coverage

Lilies is currently in beta. Parts of the API are subject to change.

Lilies is a cross-platform, CLI text formatting and coloring tool for python. It automatically adjusts support for any console, including old Windows support powered by colorama. Lilies will attempt to reproduce the original colors as close as possible, regardless of the current terminal's capabilities.

Lilies is supported on python 3.5, 3.6, 3.7, and 3.8.
