Bash colorize tool - Desktop Customization & Workflow
Shiru
Here's a small program I made to colorize text input such as ascii characters.

The code isn't too great and I'll rewrite it when I have the time but it works(for the most part).

Example:

By Shiru

Colorize program to modify text input and return colorized output.
Only tested in Bash but it should work in most shells.

Feel free to do whatever with the code you want. :)

note that substrings take priority because of the way it's currently built.
e.g. colorize "abc" "Red{b} Blue{abc}" ill only colorize the 'b',
however using only "Blue{abc}" will fully colorize the text.

To give full strings priority most of the code in colorize.c has to be rewritten.

Also some characters might cause issues.

Installation:
make
sudo make install
make clean

Uninstall:
make deinstall

Help:

Usage: colorize [OPTION]... [FILE]...
Colorizes text input in BASH depending on specified colornames.

Options:
-l, --list list all colornames
-h, --help display this help and exit
-f <file> use specified file content

Examples:
colorize "this is an example" "red{is ex}"
colorize -f textfile.txt -f clrfile.clr

Exit status:
0 if OK,
1 wrong input (e.g., cannot identify command-line argument),
2 malloc failure (e.g., cannot access required memory
3 other
4 something went seriously wrong

This is a very cool tool! I will have to give it a try.

Does this work with zsh, or just bash?

I did not download it yet, but it seems really interesting; normally I have fun using sed to pass through text and insert colors.
I think it uses echo -e "\e[1,32m" so it should work with everything.

Should work with zsh since it the program uses escape sequences.

That's what I did initially, but when I wanted to fully colorize an ascii image it sometimes took large lines of those escape sequences. Not having to write such a sed command everytime I create something with colors was the main reason I made this one.
