Bringing colour to PowerShell

image

I like to use colour in PowerShell via the –foreground and –background options to imp0rove the legibility of my scripts. However, with a range of colours to select from it became hard to work out what any combination looked like. I’d like to aim for a standard that looks good on most screens. Problem was I couldn’t really find an easy way to view all these options quickly and easily.

I therefore decided to create my own solutions here:

that you can also use. It will basically spit out a line of text for each colour combination so you can see what it actually looks like. This makes it much easier to see which combinations of foreground and background colours work.

Hopefully, this helps others brighten their PowerShell output.
