Sometimes one would like to emphasize the output of a script, be it for better visibility, or just for fun. There are two very easy ways to do that:

  • color
  • ASCII art 😊

The commands

echo -en "\033[1;33m"
figlet Danger, Will Robinson!
echo -en "\033[0m"

will give you a yellow text in giant, ASCII art letters once you have installed figlet.
