Functions that surround a string with ansistyle codes so it prints in style.


npm install ansistyles


var styles = require('ansistyles');

console.log(styles.bright('hello world'));    // prints hello world in 'bright' white
console.log(styles.underline('hello world')); // prints hello world underlined
console.log(styles.inverse('hello world'));   // prints hello world black on white

Combining with ansicolors

Get the ansicolors module:

npm install ansicolors
var styles = require('ansistyles')
  , colors = require('ansicolors');

    // prints hello world underlined in blue on a green background
    colors.bgGreen('hello world'))) 


Look at the tests to see more examples and/or run them via:

npm explore ansistyles && npm test

More Styles

As you can see from here, more styles are available, but didn't have any effect on the terminals that I tested on Mac Lion and Ubuntu Linux.

I included them for completeness, but didn't show them in the examples because they seem to have no effect.


ansistyles tries to meet simple use cases with a very simple API. However, if you need a more powerful ansi formatting tool, I'd suggest to look at the features of the ansi module.
