The ConsoleOutput extension provides a new tag, ‎<console>, which can be used to format and colorize terminal output.

Its purpose is to accurately display colors that appear on terminals, and provide a means to highlight commands that a user types so that they are easy to see in relation to program output. This extension is used by Funtoo Linux for its installation and other documentation.

Wikis Using ConsoleOutput edit

The Funtoo Linux wiki uses the ConsoleOutput extension for rendering interactive console sessions in system documentation.

Suggested use edit

It's generally recommended to use a template named console which in turn uses the ‎<console> tag, such as the Console template on the Funtoo Linux wiki.
