Collection of ansi colors and styles.


Install with npm:

$ npm install --save ansi-colors


This module exports an object of functions. Each function wraps a string with the ansi codes used to display the string with that color (or style). Use the wrapped string with console.log:

var colors = require('ansi-colors');
console.log(colors.bold(colors.cyan('[info]')), colors.cyan('This is some information'));
console.log(colors.bold(colors.yellow('[warning]')), colors.yellow('This is a warning'));
console.error(colors.bold('[ERROR]')),'Danger! There was an error!'));



See the example for more colors and styles.
