Adding colours to Python simplified into a single class

Project description


pip install object-colors


from object_colors import Color
c = Color()


  • key-values

    Match effects with effect and colors with text and background

    keys = ["text", "effect", "background"]
    values = {
        "colors": ["black", "red", "green", "yellow", "blue", "purple", "cyan", "white"]
        "effects": ['none', "bold", 'bright', "underline", "negative"]


  • set()

    Set values with keyword arguments

    >>> c.set(text="red", effect="bold", background="blue")
    >>> c.set("red", "bold", "blue")
    >>> c.set(114)
    >>> print(c.__dict__)
    {'text': 1, 'effect': 1, 'background': 4}

    Set a new class with a keyword (any key) followed by a dict value

    >>> c.set(
            red={"text": "red"},
            bold_red={"text": "red", "effect": "bold"},
            yellow={"text": "yellow"}
    >>> c.yellow.set(effect="bold")
    >>> print(c.__dict__)
        'text': 1,
        'effect': 1,
        'background': 4,
        'red': <object_colors.Color object at 0x0000020C10D06080>,
        'bold_red': <object_colors.Color object at 0x0000020C10D066D8>,
        'yellow': <object_colors.Color object at 0x0000020C10D06B00>
    >>> print(c.yellow.__dict__)
    {'text': 3, 'effect': 1, 'background': 0}
  • print()

    Instance includes enhanced print() function for color output

    >>> c.print("no color print")
    >>>"red print", flush=True)
    >>> c.yellow.print("yellow print", end="")
  • get()

    Store values for multicolored printing

    >>> bullet ="[!] ")
    >>> warning = c.yellow("Warning")
    >>> print(bullet + warning)
  • pop()

    Remove unused attributes

    >>> c.pop("bold_red")
    >>> print(c.__dict__)
        'text': 1,
        'effect': 1,
        'background': 4,
        'red': <object_colors.Color object at 0x0000020C10D06080>,
        'yellow': <object_colors.Color object at 0x0000020C10D06B00>

    Or create new instances

    >>> red = c.pop("red")
    >>> print(c.__dict__)
        'text': 1,
        'effect': 1,
        'background': 4,
        'yellow': <object_colors.Color object at 0x0000020C10D06B00>
    >>> print(red.__dict__)
    {'text': 1, 'effect': 0, 'background': 0}
    >>> red.print()
    >>> red.get()
    >>> red.set()
