My question about "Alire" concerns the output of the messages on the screen. Unfortunately, some of the messages are so pale that I can hardly read them. It may be due to my eyes and I am therefore looking for a way to increase the contrast to "normal".

One option is to specify --no-color on the alr command line.

Otherwise, this is not an Alire question; the contrast is controlled by
the background color of the app you are viewing the alr output in
(there's probably a menu option to change the background color), and the
controls on your monitor.

Maybe there is an opportunity for reuse here.
Pass a hint to Alire developers about abstraction and about
triggering standard solutions (on compliant systems...):

- the abstractions being "emphasize this word", "make that
word strongly emphasized";
- standards being terminal screens etc. that understand those
instructions and render them accordingly.

A simple 'solution' might be to select the text with the mouse. This
usually changes the foreground/background colours and may make the text
easier to read.
