There is a nice built-in Emacs feature to colorize strings with ANSI color escape sequences. So evaluating the following Elisp code, will insert the "Test text" at the
point with proper colors.
(require 'ansi-color) (insert (ansi-color-apply "^[[33mTest text^[[0m"))
I tried to use the
ansi-color-apply function to colorize the results of my Org Babel code blocks using
:post with the following filter block.
#+name:ansi-colorize #+begin_src emacs-lisp :var input="[33mTest text[0m" :results raw (ansi-color-apply input) #+end_src #+RESULTS: ansi-colorize Test text
Which only removes the color escape sequences, but the inserted text has no proper face attributes.:
ansi-color-apply is a pure function, therefore does its job right and returns with:
#("Test text" 0 9 (font-lock-face (foreground-color . "#E6DB74")))
Which does not have the expected effect when the result is inserted by Org Babel
