I need pink font color in terminal, please add it

upd:
I found a solution to my problem. I was able to link in the answer of the arNparad0x. In order to use 256 colors from tables, you need to prefix 38;5 in front. For example: i got pink by adding a line \e[38;5;212m

use this
and,


for foreground:
\e[38;5;123m or \\033[38;5;123m


for background:
\e[48;5;123m or \\033[48;5;123m


change 123 to the color-code you need


example:

echo -e "\\033[38;5;15mGit\\033[38;5;0m\\033[48;5;208mhub\\033[0m"

Is there italic with colors?
Because if I add \033[3m, there's no italic and the colors are inverted.

Maybe you’d like to replace "Intensty" with "Intensity". Thank you for this nice gist
