Colout is amazing, I use it all the time.
pip install colout from PyPI is broken, and has been for many months,
due to a typo in the
latest (v0.5) PyPI release.
This has had no effect, although I see the author has made substantial commits to the Github project in that time, including fixing this problem and tagging a new v0.6 version, although has not released any of that to PyPI.
So, in increasing order of desirability, you can either:
Clone the latest repo from Github, and install from that:
# cd to the clone, then python3 -m pip install --user .
Or, pip install the version I uploaded to PyPI, which is a straight copy of the latest Github at the time:
pip install --user colout-fix
Or, best of all, pip install straight from the original Github repo:
pip install --user git+git://github.com/nojhan/colout.git
Note that, throughout, we're using
--user, so that you can install
development tools like this system-wide for the current user, without needing a
virtualenv, without needing root access, and without modifying your installed
Python system libraries.
