A simplistic extension of functionality to the npm package 'colors'
For custom reporting on tests, I needed the green check for passing, red X for failing to pass, and the yellow triangle as warning.
The colors library by Marak is the powerhouse here. This library incorporates that, adding some additional shapes.
var colors = require('colors-plus');
var failedMessageToFormat = "Test 1 failed"; var successMessageToFormat = "Test 2 passed"; var warningMessageToFormat = "Test warning";
console.log(colors.failure(failedMessageToFormat)); console.log(colors.success(successMessageToFormat)); console.log(colors.warning(warningMessageToFormat));
$> ✗ Test 1 failed
$> ✓ Test 2 passed
$> ▲ Test warning
The above examples will be colored red, green, and yellow, respectively.
If you notice any bugs or think of any useful additions, let me know and I'll update when I can.
