Color ascii sequences in stdout are not understood by Far3

Post by sh0375 »

Hello,

Python script is sending to stdout ascii color sequences.
If I launch this script under ConEmu, then I see colored output.
If launch under Far3, then it prints all characters of ascii sequesce: ←[92m

How to tune Far3 so that it would print colored output of python script?

Escape sequences are not enabled by default neither in cmd nor in python interpreter.
Conemu intercepts the output using some black magic and processes everything itself.

You can enable escape sequences from within your script with something like:

  1. import ctypes;
  2.  
  3. STD_OUTPUT_HANDLE = -11
  4. ENABLE_VIRTUAL_TERMINAL_PROCESSING = 4
  5.  
  6. kernel32 = ctypes.WinDLL('kernel32');
  7. hStdOut = kernel32.GetStdHandle(STD_OUTPUT_HANDLE);
  8. mode = ctypes.c_ulong();
  9. kernel32.GetConsoleMode(hStdOut, ctypes.byref(mode));
  10. mode.value |= ENABLE_VIRTUAL_TERMINAL_PROCESSING;
  11. kernel32.SetConsoleMode(hStdOut, mode)

Code: [Select all] [Expand/Collapse]
DrKnS, code example in your answer is empty.
python uses colorama and calls init(), so initialization is done already.

DrKnS, Thank you!
I found out that init was not called actually
