Getting started with colors

To highlight using colors:

../snippets/getting_started_1.png

This will emit ansi escapes into the string: one when starting a color, another to reset the color back to the default:

>>> from ansicolor import green

>>> green("green")
'\x1b[0;0;32mgreen\x1b[0;0m'

If I want to be able to pass a color as an argument I can also use the colorize function:

I can also apply color on a portion of a string:
