Easily colorize commands output using patterns. ::

rainbow [ --COLOR=PATTERN ... | --conf CONF ] COMMAND

Examples

Using the command line ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Prepend

rainbow
with
--COLOR=PATTERN
associations to your command, for example:
  • Tail some log file with lines containing

    ERROR
    in red: ::

    rainbow --red=ERROR tail -f /var/log/my.log

  • You can also pipe commands output into rainbow: ::

    tail -f /var/log/my.log | rainbow --red=ERROR

Using configs ~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Rainbow can load configuration for each command from files, which is the most convenient way to use it. When running

rainbow mycommand
, rainbow will automatically look for a config named
mycommand.cfg
in
~/.config/rainbow
,
~/.rainbow
,
/etc/rainbow
, or builtin configs:
  • Colorize the

    diff
    command output using the builtin config: ::

    rainbow diff file1 file2

  • Start my custom command, using

    ~/.rainbow/mycommand.cfg
    : ::

    rainbow mycommand

The syntax for writing configs is straightforward, see the

builtin configs 
_ for examples. See also the
commands support table 
_.
