<div align=“center”>The fastest Node.js library for formatting terminal text with ANSI colors~!</div>


  • No dependencies
  • Super lightweight & performant
  • Supports nested & chained colors
  • No String.prototype modifications
  • Conditional color support
  • Familiar API

Originally inspired by ansi-colors. See Credits for more info!


$ npm install --save kleur


const kleur = require('kleur');

// basic usage
kleur.red('red text');

// chained methods
kleur.blue.bold.underline('howdy partner');

// nested methods
kleur.bold(`${ kleur.bgRed.white('[ERROR]') } ${ kleur.red.italic('Something happened')}`);

Chained Methods

console.log(kleur.bold.red('this is a bold red message'));
console.log(kleur.bold.italic('this is a bold italicized message'));
console.log(kleur.bold.yellow.bgRed.italic('this is a bold yellow italicized message'));
console.log(kleur.green.bold.underline('this is a bold green underlined message'));

Nested Methods

const { yellow, red, cyan } = require('kleur');

console.log(yellow(`foo ${red.bold('red')} bar ${cyan('cyan')} baz`));
console.log(yellow('foo ' + red.bold('red') + ' bar ' + cyan('cyan') + ' baz'));

Conditional Support

Toggle color support as needed; kleur assumes it’s always enabled.

const kleur = require('kleur');

// manually disable
kleur.enabled = false;

// or use a library to detect support
kleur.enabled = require('color-support').level;

console.log(kleur.red('I will only be colored red if the terminal supports colors'));


Any kleur method returns a String (when invoked, not chained). It’s up to the developer to pass the output to destinations like console.log, process.stdout.write, etc.

The methods below are grouped by type for legibility purposes only. They each can be chained or nested with one another.


black — red — green — yellow — blue — magenta — cyan — white — gray


bgBlack — bgRed — bgGreen — bgYellow — bgBlue — bgMagenta — bgCyan — bgWhite


reset — bold — dim — italic* — underline — inverse — hidden — strikethrough*

<sup>* Not widely supported</sup>

This project was originally inspired by Brian Woodward’s awesome ansi-colors project.

Unlike v1, the latest version(s) of kleur no longer supports:

  • printf-formatting
  • variadic function arguments
  • multiline text via \n or \r
  • kleur.clear() method

In addition, kleur continues to be ship without symbols and bright color variants.

If you need any of these features, please use ansi-colors instead~!
