#JavaScript - ANSI Escape Codes

ANSI Escape Codes are special characters which can be used to control formatting, colors or other output preferences in a text terminal. Escape Codes are non-printing code and will not appear in the output directly.

  • \033 begins the escape sequence
  • [ indicates the color
  • 33 is the foreground color for yellow
  • m indicates the end of the setting

Note: \033[39m is used set the color back to the terminal defult

console.log('\033[33m Hello World \033[39m');

This will give a nice yellow color Hello World.
