Console color

Hi,

 

When I run an external tool, the console shows no colors

This screenshot shows the difference between the console and the terminal

Is there a solution/workaround?

 

Cheers

External tools cponsoledoesn't currently support colored output, as not all ANSI sequences can be interpreted (related ticket: https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/IDEA-200189)

I'd suggest using NPM or Node.js run configurations for running cypress tests. Node.js run console supports colors

1. with NPM

 

Node.js;

Thank you Elena, I used the external tools because they allow a keyboard shortcut to be configured

Anyway, I will follow your suggestion and use this plugin for better usability
