bramus/ansi-phpis a set of classes to working with ANSI Control Functions and ANSI Control Sequences (ANSI Escape Sequences) on text based terminals.
- ANSI Control Functions control an action such as line spacing, paging, or data flow.
- ANSI Control Sequences allow one to clear the screen, move the cursor, set text colors, etc.
When it comes to ANSI Escape Sequences
bramus/ansi-phpsupports SGR (Select Graphic Rendition) and ED (Erase Display)
- SGR affords one to manipulate text styling (bold, underline, blink, colors, etc.).
- ED allows one to erase the display.
Other Control Sequences – such as moving the cursor – are not (yet) supported.
It differs from other “PHP ANSI Color” attempts by not being limited to SGR only – it can easily be extended to support other ANSI Escape Sequences – and by supporting all SGR parameters.
The library ships with an
Ansi helper class to easily use it.
use \Bramus\Ansi\Ansi; use \Bramus\Ansi\ControlSequences\EscapeSequences\Enums\SGR; // Create Ansi Instance $a = new Ansi(); // Output some styled text on screen, along with a Line Feed and a Bell echo $a->color(array(SGR::COLOR_FG_RED, SGR::COLOR_BG_WHITE)) ->blink() ->text('My text will be white on a red background and I will be blinking.') ->nostyle() ->lf() ->text('I will be normally styled. Oh, a bell is coming up ...') ->bell() ->get();
Installation of course is possible via Composer:
composer require bramus/ansi-php ~2.0
I don’t run ads on my blog nor do I do this for profit. A donation however would always put a smile on my face though. Thanks!
