Description ricktw 2011-02-24 07:46:07 UTC
It would be nice to have a feature implemented to color output windows (E.g. Tomcat server output).
See Eclipse's Grep Console:
Comment 1 Marian Mirilovic 2011-02-24 07:51:15 UTC
I like it ...
Comment 2 doug 2011-11-02 01:12:49 UTC
This would great, esp. so if it will be the same or similar to implement across Netbeans and Eclipse (cross-compatibility).
Comment 3 markiewb 2012-09-23 00:05:59 UTC
ANSI coloring is now supported in output window (#214546), so work on this issue can be started.
Comment 4 Meo 2013-11-25 21:06:12 UTC
IntelliJ can do it now too

I'm sorry, it won't be certainly included in 8.0, maybe in some of future versions.

But anyone can implement it as a plugin.
