Fork of termcolor library
modern ANSII Color formatting for output in terminal
What is neotermcolor
neotermcolor library is a fork of old good termcolor, which is widely used. I like it very much, but unfortunately last release was long time ago.
Everything is fully backward compatible with original termcolor:
import sys from neotermcolor import colored, cprint text = colored('Hello, World!', 'red', attrs=['reverse', 'blink']) print(text) cprint('Hello, World!', 'green', 'on_red') print_red_on_cyan = lambda x: cprint(x, 'red', 'on_cyan') print_red_on_cyan('Hello, World!') print_red_on_cyan('Hello, Universe!') for i in range(10): cprint(i, 'magenta', end=' ') cprint("Attention!", 'red', attrs=['bold'], file=sys.stderr)
pip3 install neotermcolor
It works in Windows terminal
Yep, right out-of-the-box (tested on Windows 10)
It is readline-safe
When you mix ANSI color codes with readline input, it may cause a problem. neotermcolor has a workaround:
- new param for cprint and colored: readline_safe=True
- you may also turn on readline-safe colorizing by default, setting
import neotermcolor neotermcolor.readline_always_safe = True
It has 256-color palette
If color code is specified as an integer (0..255), ANSI 256-color palette is used. You may specify color codes both for foreground and background and mix them with other attributes:
from neotermcolor import cprint cprint('Underline light-green (119) on grey (237)', 119, 237, ['underline'])
It is TTY-aware
neotermcolor will not colorize text if process stdout or stderr is not a TTY.
This feature is on by default, but you may turn it off:
import neotermcolor neotermcolor.tty_aware = False
It has palette overriding
You may define own color names or override existing ones: e.g. you may use standard palette for 16-color terminals, but override it when your program detect terminal with 256-color support or when it's forced by user:
import neotermcolor neotermcolor.set_color('red', 197) neotermcolor.cprint('Red color is now purple', 'red')
It has styles
Styles are alternative to classical defining a "style" for certain type of messages with functools.partial or lambda. A style may contain color, on_color and attributes:
import neotermcolor neotermcolor.set_style('error', color='red', attrs='bold') neotermcolor.cprint('ERROR MESSAGE', style='error') # or neotermcolor.cprint('ERROR MESSAGE 2', '@error')
Note: if you specify both style and e.g. attrs, the style attrs will be overriden.
Single attribute can now be specified as a string
# as list or tuple cprint('test', attrs=['bold']) # as a string cprint('test', attrs='bold')
How to use it instead of old termcolor in the existing projects
import neotermcolor as termcolor
I'll do my best to keep it backward compatible with original termcolor.
