Is it possible to support text coloring in Jenkins console output, similar
to a linux console?

When you print specific chars in a linux console, it colors them, can
Jenkins support this?

#text colors
RED="\033[0;31m"
GREEN="\033[92m"
BLUE="\033[94m"
YELLOW="\033[93m"
NO_COLOR="\033[0m"

Eyal.

hi Eyal!

afaik this is not possible in this very generic way you are describing.
however, if you are planning to use this to tag warning/info/error outputs in your log, then maybe this plugin is what you need:

Also, if you are wanting to do this in the emails, I just added a simple check in the html.jelly file for if a line contains "warning:" etc and added a color changing tag around that output in the html email.

This answer may not be relevant now, but to save newbie's time, its https://wiki.jenkins-ci.org/display/JENKINS/AnsiColor+Plugin what does it exactly. But user's code should have these color codes which might not be acceptable for few then should for https://wiki.jenkins-ci.org/display/JENKINS/Log+Parser+Plugin
