lscolors

Build Status Crates.io Documentation

A library for colorizing paths according to the LS_COLORS environment variable (like ls).

Usage

use lscolors::{LsColors, Style};

let lscolors = LsColors::from_env().unwrap_or_default();

let path = "some/folder/test.tar.gz";
let style = lscolors.style_for_path(path);

// If you want to use `ansi_term`:
let ansi_style = style.map(Style::to_ansi_term_style)
                      .unwrap_or_default();
println!("{}", ansi_style.paint(path));

Command-line application

This crate also comes with a small command-line program lscolors that can be used to colorize the output of other commands:

> find . -maxdepth 2 | lscolors

> rg foo -l | lscolors

You can install it by running cargo install lscolors or by downloading one of the prebuilt binaries from the release page.
