Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-4634) cqlsh --color option doesn't allow you to disable colors
Date Sun, 09 Sep 2012 00:15:07 GMT


paul cannon commented on CASSANDRA-4634:

Since I'm not a particular fan of ls/grep's command-line color control (too much typing for
cases which are fairly common) and since this isn't backwards compatible (using {{\--color}}
alone will give an error), I'm inclined to vote -1 on it. Can we just add a {{\--no-color}}
option to force color off for the people who don't want to do {{TERM=dumb}} or {{cqlsh | cat}}
or something?

> There's no way to disable colors with cqlsh, despite it having a {{--color}} option,
because that option can only enable color if present, not disable it, and the default is that
color is enabled.
> (Incidentally, if the {{--file}} option is used, it will disable color.)
