color(r, g, b) View Source
color(0..5, 0..5, 0..5) :: String.t()

Sets the foreground color from individual RGB values.

Valid values for each color are in the range 0 to 5.

Sets the background color from individual RGB values.

Valid values for each color are in the range 0 to 5.

Conceal. Not widely supported.

Crossed-out. Characters legible, but marked for deletion. Not widely supported.

Sends cursor to the absolute position specified by line and column.

Line 0 and column 0 would mean the top left corner.

Checks if ANSI coloring is supported and enabled on this machine.

This function simply reads the configuration value for :ansi_enabled in the :elixir application. The value is by default false unless Elixir can detect during startup that both stdout and stderr are terminals.

format(chardata, emit? \\ enabled?()) View Source

Formats a chardata-like argument by converting named ANSI sequences into actual ANSI codes.

The named sequences are represented by atoms.

It will also append an IO.ANSI.reset/0 to the chardata when a conversion is performed. If you don't want this behaviour, use format_fragment/2.

An optional boolean parameter can be passed to enable or disable emitting actual ANSI codes. When false, no ANSI codes will emitted. By default checks if ANSI is enabled using the enabled?/0 function.

Examples

iex> IO.ANSI.format(["Hello, ", :red, :bright, "world!"], true)
[[[[[[], "Hello, "] | "\e[31m"] | "\e[1m"], "world!"] | "\e[0m"]

Examples

[[[[[[] | "\e[1m"], 87], 111], 114], 100]
