A small package to make printing pretty things easier!
ThrowColour is a small Python module to make printing messages with formatting and colours easier! This module is mostly just practice with creating a working pip module for learning purposes.
- Supports different types of print messages with colour coding
- Support basic formatting (bold, italics)
- Supports timestamp printing
To download throwcolour, either fork this Github repo or simply use Pypi via pip.
$ pip install throwcolour
A few functional examples of how to use ThrowColour.
A basic example of how to use the
from throwcolour import cthrow cthrow('Test 1,2')
This would print the message
DATETIME - [INFO] Test 1,2 in a nice looking purple with
DATETIME replaced with the current timestamp.
cthrow function is as follows:
cthrow(message, type='INFO', formatting=None, addPrefix=True, dateTime=True)
As you can see, a flag can be specified. This specifies the colour of the message and the message type. When setting flags, ensure the strings match exactly the name of the flag detailed below.
- INFO - A nice aesthetic purple message
- OK - A satisfying green message
- WARN - A cautionary yellow message
- ERR - A not-so-good red message
cthrow("This probably isn't good", type="WARN")
We can also disable the prefix (the stuff inside the ) and timestamp as follows.
cthrow("Look Mom, no prefix and timestamp!", addPrefix=False, dateTime=False)
Setting formatting flags
With ThrowColour it is also possible to set multiple formatting flags such as bold and italics. It is important to note that the argument
formatting takes a list containing strings of different formatting options.
cthrow("Bold and Underlined", formatting=['BOLD','UNDERLINE'])
Or just bolded,
cthrow("Nice and bold", formatting=['BOLD'])
