[certbot] POLL: Add colours/formatting to certbot output?

I wanted to discuss a possible feature request for certbot before I’d make an actual Issue on Github. Just let us brainstorm the idea, perhaps some like it, perhaps some would hate it.

Many virtual consoles support colours (although I can’t find a nice feature overview of common virtual consoles) and I thought it might enhance the output of certbot when used interactive. For example, the output of certbot certificates might become a lot more readable when using some colours.

Even if colours might be a step too far, adding formatting like bold might enhance the output.

What are your thoughts?

  • Yes! Colours! What a wonderful idea!
  • Colours could be nice, but I’m not sure yet. I have to think about it.
  • Ugh, colours, no thanks. But formatting is a good idea!
  • No colours, no formatting please, just leave it like it is now.
