This tiny wrapper around chalk enables easy coloring of log messages.
/**
* Chalk powered color log
* =======================
* This module is a wrapper around the chalk package to provide
* simpler log message formatting.
* To switch a color inside your log message, simply use ´X where
* X is one of the color names in the chalkMap below.
*
* Example:
*
* console.log('Roses are ' + chalk.red('red') + ', violets are ' + chalk.blue('blue') + '.');
*
* vs:
*
* log('Roses are `rred`w, violets are `bblue`w.');
*
