     116==== Improving the Command Line Tool UX ==== #color
     117The output of the MacPorts command-line tool is pretty bland. This definitely could be improved by modifying the Tcl source code of the command line tool. We could have more pretty stuff for better user experience: progress bars, emojis, bold text and colored text.
     118The things that should be done entail (but are not exclusive to): detecting if the output channel is color-compatible (e.g. we can't color if we're outputting to a log file), figure out how to bold and color strings in Tcl (see [https://misc.flogisoft.com/bash/tip_colors_and_formatting]), also figure out the which parts of the text exactly we need to emphasise for good UX.
