Pypi:
It is also in Pypi under 'Pycolor' for easy install. You can install it with "pip install pycolor."

Story:

I make a majority of my applications for the command line. I love the command line. It's a simple, straightforward interface that displays exactly what you want. However, it is ugly. This comes as a given, anything that's just white (or green if you're cool) text on a black background isn't going to look good. I wanted my convenience to be beautiful, or at the very least, to be able to find the information I need faster.

Python wasn't providing that for me. ANSI escape sequences are not core Python functionality, and the existing color modules were bulky, confusing, or just lacking features. I simply wanted a way to color my output without digging through readme's or scratching my head over complicated functions. Pycolor offers a handful of different ways to produce ANSI sequences so that you can do whatever is the best fit for the situation.

Tech:

Pycolor isn't made up of complicated algorithms or complex conditionals. It's simply a few objects and a few functions that help you work with them. It features a large amount of ANSI supported colors and attributes, including XTerm 256 colors, blinking, and even rainbows. All you have to do is use it.

Status:

Pycolor's status is currently MAINTAINED. I would be happy to fix any bugs that might arise, but I will probably not be adding more features.
