colorama 0.4.5


Cross-platform colored terminal text.

ANSI escape character sequences have long been used to produce colored terminal text and cursor positioning on Unix and Macs . Colorama makes this work on Windows, too, by stripping ANSI sequences it finds (which would appear as gobbledygook in the output) into win32 calls to modify the state of the terminal. Colorama has no requirements other than the standard library. Cross-platform colored terminal text.
