Color

Color in terminal and only terminal.

Programmer

As a programmer, you think they are functions:

var color = require('colorful')
color.red('hello')
color.underline('hello')
color.red(color.underline('hello'))

Human

As a human, you think you are a painter:

var paint = require('colorful').paint
paint('hello').red.color
paint('hello').bold.underline.red.color

WTF, is bold, underline a color? If you don't like the idea, try:

paint('hello').bold.underline.red.style

Alien

As an alien, you are from outer space, you think it should be:

require('colorful').colorful()
'hello'.to.red.color
'hello'.to.underline.bold.red.color
'hello'.to.underline.bold.red.style

Artist

As an artist, you need more colors.

var Color = require('colorful').Color;

var s = new Color('colorful');
s.fgcolor = 13;
s.bgcolor = 61;

Support ANSI 256 colors. [0 - 255]

Toxic

Let's posion the string object, just like colors does.

require('colorful').toxic()
'hello'.bold
'hello'.red

Detective

As a detective, you think we should detect if color is supported:

require('colorful').isSupported

// we can disable color
require('colorful').disabled = true
require('colorful').isSupported
// => false
