I'm aware that this is possible with the os module's os.system("color") function, but this changes the whole terminal what I'm looking for something localized to only a single string or variable output. Something in the standard library would be optimal as I want to use this on multiple computers without have to use py2exe or freeze.
Please take a look at the answer for the question:
If you can't install addtional modules, you can try to use ANSI-sequences directly. Please note, that the method is not portable, and it's better to use some special module.
print " "+ "\033[01;41m" + " " +"\033[01;46m" + " " + "\033[01;42m"
When you need somthing more powerful, I suggest you using
from colorama import Fore, Back, Style print(Fore.RED + 'some red text') print(Back.GREEN + 'and with a green background') print(Style.DIM + 'and in dim text') print(Style.RESET_ALL) print('back to normal now')
Another option, use
from termcolor import colored print colored('hello', 'red'), colored('world', 'green')
