Color strings for terminal ouput (ANSI 256 colors) using CSS-style ``rgb`` notation.

Project description

Color strings for terminal ouput (ANSI 256 colors) using CSS-style rgb notation.


pip install rgb2ansi


from rgb2ansi import color

print(color("Hello", fg='4444ff'), color("world!", bg='ff4400'))

You can pass a foreground (text) color, a background color, or both. The following inputs are accepted as color parameters:

  • Hex strings, e.g. ff4400.

  • Byte strings, e.g. b'\xff\x44\x00'

  • Sequences of integers, e.g. (255, 68, 0)

Note that color() is lossy: it simply rounds the color to the closest 8-bit color available.
