This library allows for exploiting the color and attribute facilities of most modern terminals using ANSI escape sequences. This library provides the following:
- ansi_format/3 allows writing messages to the terminal with ansi attributes.
- It defines the hook prolog:message_line_element/2, which provides ansi attributes for print_message/2.
- [det]ansi_format(+ClassOrAttributes, +Format, +Args)
- Format text with ANSI attributes. This predicate behaves as
format/2 using Format
and Args, but if the
current_outputis a terminal, it adds ANSI escape sequences according to Attributes. For example, to print a text in bold cyan, do
?- ansi_format([bold,fg(cyan)], 'Hello ~w', [world]).
Attributes is either a single attribute, a list thereof or a term that is mapped to concrete attributes based on the current theme (see prolog:console_color/2). The attribute names are derived from the ANSI specification. See the source for sgr_code/2 for details. Some commonly used attributes are:
bg(Color), the colour name can be’#RGB' or’#RRGGBB'
- 8-bit color specification. Spec is a colour name,
h(Color)or an integer 0..255.
fg(R, G, B)
bg(R, G, B)
- 24-bit (direct color) specification. The components are integers in the range 0..255.
Defined color constants are below.
defaultcan be used to access the default color of the terminal.
- black, red, green, yellow, blue, magenta, cyan, white
ANSI sequences are sent if and only if
current_outputhas the property
- The Prolog flag
- [semidet,multifile]prolog:console_color(+Term, -AnsiAttributes)
- Hook that allows for mapping abstract terms to concrete ANSI attributes.
This hook is used by theme files to adjust the rendering based on
user preferences and context. Defaults are defined in the file
- See also
library(theme/dark)for an example implementation and the Term values used by the system messages.
- [semidet,multifile]prolog:message_line_element(+Stream, +Term)
- Hook implementation that deals with
ansi(+Attr, +Fmt, +Args)in message specifications.
- [semidet]ansi_get_color(+Which, -RGB)
- Obtain the RGB color for an ANSI color parameter. Which
is either a color alias or an integer ANSI color id. Defined aliases are
background. This predicate sends a request to the console (
user_output) and reads the reply. This assumes an
RGB is a term
rgb(Red,Green,Blue). The color components are integers in the range 0..65535.
