SBT does correctly output color on powershell or cmd.exe. I don't see why not bloop can't also support color on windows.

@jvican jvican changed the title Windows color output on terminal. Support color on Powershell or cmd.exe by default Jul 2, 2018

I'll eventually fix this. Note that if you're using Windows 10, then you have to enable ASCII escape sequences manually because it's turned off by default https://stackoverflow.com/questions/51680709/colored-text-output-in-powershell-console-using-ansi-vt100-codes

Also, for those Windows users with cygwin (and not necessarily on Windows 10): you can run powershell inside cygwin to benefit from the current ansii escape sequences https://superuser.com/questions/85058/powershell-not-displaying-unix-colors

And for future reference this is about the best guide i've read to get colored output working on Windows https://github.com/rspec/rspec/wiki/Getting-colored-output-working-on-Windows

Given that this is not high priority, I won't be focusing on this in the short-term. Help on this is welcome
