#56022 new defect

Colors in the port command

Reported by: g5pw (Aljaž Srebrnič) Owned by: g5pw (Aljaž Srebrnič)
Priority: Normal Milestone: MacPorts 2.7.0
Component: ports Version:
Keywords: Cc:


At the MacportsMeeting2018 we discussed about adding colors to the port command. The lowest-hanging fruit would be to colorize warnings and errors. That can be done directly in the port client but it needs to be checked if the resulting output is "pleasing".

Some ideas:

  • Emphasize importance such as red for ui_error, yellow for ui_warn, gray for UI_PREFIX (-->)
  • Emphasize portnames in actions like install
