What version are you using?


What did you do?

Tried to use eslint from terminal

What happened?

Line numbers and broken rule were invisible

What did you expect to happen?

To be able to see them.


Turns out this is a long-standing bug in solarized [1] with no easy fix. Chalk author suggests using 'dim' rather than 'gray' [2] which looks just as beautiful to me.

[1] altercation/solarized#220
[2] chalk/chalk#40

I don't understand. Is this an issue with stylish output and similar, where the control characters for changing color work poorly on certain terminal themes?

Yes, a bad combination of chalk.gray and solarized background colour
