How to change color of text in Termux?

Are you looking to add a splash of color to your Termux terminal? Termux is a powerful command-line interface that allows you to access and control your Android device’s functionalities. While the default text color in Termux is usually white, it is possible to customize it to make your experience more visually appealing and personalized.

In this article, we will explore different methods to change the color of the text in Termux, providing you with step-by-step instructions and helpful tips along the way.

To change the font color in Termux, you can use the ANSI escape sequences. These sequences allow you to modify the text style and color in the terminal.

Here’s an example of how you can change the font color in Termux:

  1. Open the Termux app on your device.
  2. Type the following command to change the font color to red:
echo -e "\e[31mHello, World!\e[0m"

This will print “Hello, World!” in red color.

The command uses the ANSI escape sequence “\e[31m” to set the color to red and “\e[0m” to reset the color back to the default.

You can use different ANSI escape sequences to change the font color to other predefined colors or even customize the color by specifying RGB values.

Here are some ANSI escape sequences for different colors:

  • Black: \e[30m
  • Red: \e[31m
  • Green: \e[32m
  • Yellow: \e[33m
  • Blue: \e[34m
  • Magenta: \e[35m
  • Cyan: \e[36m
  • White: \e[37m

You can replace the color code in the command above to change the font color to your desired color.

Remember to include \e[0m at the end to reset the color back to the default after you’re done.
