colorful - Terminal string styling done right, in Python :snake: :tada:

Note: on a Windows system it will install colorama as a dependency to ensure proper ANSI support. These days terminals not only support the ancient 8 ANSI colors but often they support up to 16 Million colors with true color. And if they don't support true color they might support the 256 ANSI color palette at least.

rang - A Minimal, Header only Modern c++ library for terminal goodies 💄✨

Put rang.hpp in the include folder directly into the project source tree or somewhere reachable from your project.

pixterm - Draw images in your ANSI terminal with true color

  •    Go

PIXterm shows images directly in your terminal, recreating the pixels through a combination of ANSI character background color and the unicode lower half block element. If image has transparency, an optional matte color can be used for background. Also, you can specify a dithering mode; in which case, the image is rendered using block elements with different shades, or using standard ASCII characters in the same way. In dithering mode, the matte color is used to fill the background of the blocks or characters. The conversion process runs fast because it is parallelized in all CPUs.

Rainbow - Delightful console output for Swift developers.

  •    Swift

Rainbow adds text color, background color and style for console and command line output in Swift. It is born for cross platform software logging in terminals, working in both Apple's platforms and Linux. Thanks to the open source of Swift, developers now could write cross platform programs with the same language. And I believe the command line software would be the next great platform for Swift. Colorful and well organized output always helps us to understand what happens. It is really a necessary utility to create wonderful software.

rickrollrc - Rick Astley invades your terminal.

  •    Shell

Bash script which rickrolls your terminal by playing Rick Astley’s “Never Gonna Give You Up” with ANSI 256-color coded UTF-8 characters + audio (if available). For a salutary lesson in the importance of taking care what you execute in your terminal, inspired by the classic sl, save the command in a shell script called suod somewhere on your PATH. It’s recommended to download the script for faster startup, to avoid spoiling the surprise when you accidentally execute it for the nth time (and also, unless you really like living dangerously, for security, in case we are demonically possessed to replace with something evil).
