Moves cursor to beginning of the line n lines down.

Kind: static method of cursor

Param Type
n number

ansi.rgb(r, g, b) ⇒ string

Returns a 24-bit "true colour" foreground colour escape sequence.

Kind: static method of ansi-escape-sequences

Param Type Description
r number Red value.
g number Green value.
b number Blue value.

Example

> ansi.rgb(120, 0, 120)
'\u001b[38;2;120;0;120m'

ansi.bgRgb(r, g, b) ⇒ string

Returns a 24-bit "true colour" background colour escape sequence.

Kind: static method of ansi-escape-sequences

Param Type Description
r number Red value.
g number Green value.
b number Blue value.

Example

> ansi.bgRgb(120, 0, 120)
'\u001b[48;2;120;0;120m'

ansi.styles(styles) ⇒ string

Returns an ansi sequence setting one or more styles.

Kind: static method of ansi-escape-sequences

Param Type Description
styles string | Array.<string> One or more style strings.

Example

> ansi.styles('green')
'\u001b[32m'
 
> ansi.styles([ 'green', 'underline' ])
'\u001b[32m\u001b[4m'
 
> ansi.styles([ 'bg-red', 'rgb(200,200,200)' ])
'\u001b[41m\u001b[38;2;200;200;200m'

ansi.format(str, [styleArray]) ⇒ string

A convenience function, applying the styles provided in styleArray to the input string.

Partial, inline styling can also be applied using the syntax [style-list]{text to format} anywhere within the input string, where style-list is a space-separated list of styles from ansi.style. For example [bold white bg-red]{bold white text on a red background}.

24-bit "true colour" values can be set using rgb(n,n,n) syntax (no spaces), for example [rgb(255,128,0) underline]{orange underlined}. Background 24-bit colours can be set using bg-rgb(n,n,n) syntax.

Kind: static method of ansi-escape-sequences

Param Type Description
str string The string to format. Can also include inline-formatting using the syntax [style-list]{text to format} anywhere within the string.
[styleArray] string | Array.<string> One or more style strings to apply to the input string. Valid strings are any property from the ansi.style object (e.g. red or bg-red), rgb(n,n,n) or bg-rgb(n,n,n).

Example

> ansi.format('what?', 'green')
'\u001b[32mwhat?\u001b[0m'
 
> ansi.format('what?', ['green', 'bold'])
'\u001b[32m\u001b[1mwhat?\u001b[0m'
 
> ansi.format('something', ['rgb(255,128,0)', 'bold'])
'\u001b[38;2;255;128;0m\u001b[1msomething\u001b[0m'
 
> ansi.format('Inline styling: [rgb(255,128,0) bold]{something}')
'Inline styling: \u001b[38;2;255;128;0m\u001b[1msomething\u001b[0m'
 
> ansi.format('Inline styling: [bg-rgb(255,128,0) bold]{something}')
'Inline styling: \u001b[48;2;255;128;0m\u001b[1msomething\u001b[0m'
