VSCode Log Output Colorizer

License Version Installs Ratings

Language extension for VSCode/Bluemix Code that adds syntax colorization for both the output/debug/extensions panel and *.log files.

Note: If you are using other extensions that colorize the output panel, it could override and disable this extension.

Colorization should work with most themes because it uses common theme token style names. It also works with most instances of the output panel. Initially attempts to match common literals (strings, dates, numbers, guids) and warning|info|error|server|local messages.
