Functions

black()

Sets foreground color to black.

black_background()

Sets background color to black.

Blink: off.

Blink: rapid. MS-DOS ANSI.SYS; 150 per minute or more; not widely supported.

Blink: slow. Less than 150 per minute.

blue()

Sets foreground color to blue.

blue_background()

Sets background color to blue.

bright()

Bright (increased intensity) or bold.

clear()

color(code)

color(0..255) :: String.t

Sets foreground color.

color(r, g, b)

color(0..5, 0..5, 0..5) :: String.t

Sets the foreground color from individual RGB values.

Valid values for each color are in the range 0 to 5.

color_background(code)

color_background(0..255) :: String.t

Sets background color.

color_background(r, g, b)

color_background(0..5, 0..5, 0..5) :: String.t

This function simply reads the configuration value for :ansi_enabled in the :elixir application. The value is by default false unless Elixir can detect during startup that both stdout and stderr are terminals.

format(chardata, emit? \\ enabled?())

Formats a chardata-like argument by converting named ANSI sequences into actual ANSI codes.

The named sequences are represented by atoms.

It will also append an IO.ANSI.reset/0 to the chardata when a conversion is performed. If you don’t want this behaviour, use format_fragment/2.

An optional boolean parameter can be passed to enable or disable emitting actual ANSI codes. When false, no ANSI codes will emitted. By default checks if ANSI is enabled using the enabled?/0 function.

Examples

iex> IO.ANSI.format(["Hello, ", :red, :bright, "world!"], true)
[[[[[[], "Hello, "] | "\e[31m"] | "\e[1m"], "world!"] | "\e[0m"]

format_fragment(chardata, emit? \\ enabled?())

Formats a chardata-like argument by converting named ANSI sequences into actual ANSI codes.

The named sequences are represented by atoms.

An optional boolean parameter can be passed to enable or disable emitting actual ANSI codes. When false, no ANSI codes will emitted. By default checks if ANSI is enabled using the enabled?/0 function.

Examples

iex> IO.ANSI.format_fragment([:bright, 'Word'], true)
[[[[[[] | "\e[1m"], 87], 111], 114], 100]
