chalk template strings

See original GitHub issue


Consider running stuff through the chalk template function like this:

const chalk = require('chalk');
const chalkTemplate = require("chalk/templates");

const myString = "{red RED}";

console.log(chalkTemplate(chalk, myString));

Which is slightly less ugly, but still hacky.

Fine. How about this then:

const chalk = require('chalk');
const myString = "{red RED}";

console.log("Works:", chalkFormat(myString));

function chalkFormat(string) {
  const arr = [string];
  arr.raw = [string];
  return chalk(arr);

That uses the ES2015 template literal API (not 100% to spec, but it works) and it doesn’t use any undocumented chalk features.

If you’d want to do it to spec you’d have to go and replace all all escape sequences in raw with their literal values, but chalk handles that fine anyways.

i’m back from holiday now (although still jet-lagged!) and have implemented the raw property solution in v5.0.4, as suggested… thanks again, keep me posted.
