I would like to colorize output of one long complex interactive
BASH script to make it easier for the user to work with it. I have learned how to use tput, but my question is more matter of design:
Terminal style is usually
whitish background and
black text, or
black background and
white/yellow/light green text. If I need then, lets say, three colors for my script, how to choose them to look good on any terminal?
I have seen once even terminal with
pink background with white snowflakes and
black text... Well, I could explicitly set black background and colorize output as I wish, but I don't wish to overwrite user's settings.
Is there any general advice how to deal with that?
