Python module to ease the use of colors on programs that run on CLI

Project description

Module colors

Python module to ease the use of colors on programs that run on CLI.
Works fine on Linux and any Operating System running BaSH or compatibles.
If the shell's not color compatible, he'll get the raw string.
The module have predefined some basic colors, but you can use any color,
if you know the color code.

Usage example

>>> from colors import Color
>>> yellow = Color('1;33')
>>> print yellow('Hello World')
Hello World

>>> from colors import red
>>> print red('Ola Mundo')

Working with this module as an optional dependency

If you don't want to force the users to have PyColors installed
you can make the use of the colors module optional. For example: ::

# trying to use colors
from colors import light_blue, light_red, red, white
light_blue = light_red = red = white = lambda(x): str(x)

With this, if the user don't have the colors module, he'll get the
raw strings normally.
