How to use it

Install the package:

$ npm install --save pretty-repl

Use the package:

const repl = require('pretty-repl');

const options = {
    prompt: '→ '
};

repl.start(options);

options is an an object with the same options as repl.REPLServer.

Additionally, it's possible to pass an additional colorize property to the options object:

{
    colorize: function (str) {
        // str is the the string in input.
        // the function should return the string that has been colorized to output in the REPL.
    }
}

In order to highlighting matching pairs of brackets, a colorizeMatchingBracket is also available.
