Coloring

You can put color as either entire Row or entire column

const { Table } = require("console-table-printer");

const p = new Table({
columns: [
{ name: "index", alignment: "left", color: "yellow" }, // column coloring
{ name: "text", alignment: "right" },
],
});

p.addRow({ index: 1, text: "red wine", value: 10.212 }, { color: "green" }); // row coloring

p.addRow({ index: 2, text: "green gemuse", value: 20.0 });
p.addRow(
{ index: 3, text: "gelb bananen", value: 100, is_priority_today: "Y" },
{ color: "yellow" }
);
p.addRow(
{ index: 3, text: "rosa hemd wie immer", value: 100 },
{ color: "cyan" }
);
p.printTable();

Batch Row coloring

const { printTable, Table } = require("console-table-printer");

const p = new Table();

p.addRows(
[
// adding multiple rows are possible
{ index: 3, text: "green color text1", value: 100 },
{ index: 4, text: "green color text2", value: 300 },
],
{ color: "green" } // multiple rows sharing same properties
);

// print
p.printTable();
