    If you’re anything like me and find coloured text is often unreadable in a terminal window, here’s the list of how to address the issue:

      Agreed. I haven’t read the article yet, but my first thought was “how am I going to turn that off”

        Probably it will have an option --no-color or something as well as config. Somebody will ask for it for a specific niche use case and it might not be hard to implement within apt so they add it

        It’ll be fun filtering all the color codes out of build logs, that’s for sure. :/

          Apt even warns you to not use it for anything scripting related, apt-get has a stable interface for exactly that

          So far almost any Linux software I have used and supports colored output automatically turns off coloring if it detects that stdout is not a terminal.
