Ansi escaped color styling for the console/terminal

Why?

It loads fast. It runs fast. It's lightweight. It has no dependencies. I wanted to learn.

Installation

$ npm install colorz

Usage

see the example.js for further usage
var colorz = require('colorz')

colorz.red('because')
colorz.brRed('because')
colorz.green('because')
colorz.brGreen('because')
colorz.magenta('becaaaausssse')
colorz.cyan('because')
colorz.white('of')
colorz.gray('the')
colorz.inverse('wonderful')
colorz.black('things')
colorz.strikethrough('he')
colorz.red('does')
colorz.bgRed('da da da da da da da, dum dum')
colorz.underline(colorz.cyan('we\'re off to see the wizard'))
colorz.dim('the wonderful wizard of OZ!')
colorz.bold('hello world')

// you can also make things a bit easier for yourself 
const red = colorz.red
const blu = colorz.blue
// etc, etc.

console.log(red('Hello World'))
My iterm setup. YMMV

.strip(ansiDecoratedTextMsg)

Strip the ansi escaped sequences off the text
var text = colorz.cyan('Hello')
console.log(colorz.strip(text))
// --> Hello

.expose(color:STRING[, text:STRING, noColor:BOOLEAN])

Expose the ansi escape strings in color (default)
console.log(colorz.expose('green'))
console.log(colorz.expose('cyan', 'See me now'))
console.log(colorz.expose('bgYellow', 'I am a background', true))
console.log(colorz.expose('magenta', false))
