culour

Print colored strings in curses windows easily

The problem

There's no way to print pre-formatted, colored terminal text into curses. If you're printing '\033[94m Blue', which in regular bash terminal is a nice-blue text, in curses, it will be printed as '^[[94m Blue'

Solution

Use culour (pronounced 'cooler') to print the colored strings onto your curses window. Instead of using:

window.addstr("colored string")

Simply use;

import culour
culour.addstr(window, "colored string")

And your string will be added to the screen nice and colored.

To print to a specific place in the screen, use:

culour.addstr(window, y, x, "colored string")

Don't forget to initialize the color usage in your curses window by calling curses.start_color() immediately after curses.initscr()
