Glitz adds ANSI-colorized glamour to your terminal output

Example

require 'glitz'

include Glitz

puts "Roses are Red".foreground(:red)
puts "Editors are White on Black".foreground(:white).background(:black)
puts "If you eat " + "Chunky Bacon".bold.underline
puts "Beware the dreaded " + "Blink Attack!".foreground(:white).background(:magenta).blink

Demo

If your terminal supports ANSI colors, execute the command below to check out the output from the example

$ echo | curl https://raw.github.com/gist/1217524/9222c1e0f788b852ec277f213fe47b122ef3836f/poem.txt

Usage

Colors and effects can be chained, and added in any order. You can specify one foreground color and one background color (setting a new value will overwrite the previous one). Effects like bold and underline, on the other hand, combine together.

Supported Values

  • Colors: [:black, :red, :green, :yellow, :blue, :magenta, :cyan, :white]

  • Effects: [:bold, :underline, :blink, :reverse, :concealed]
