I exclusively use RStudio for data munging and analysis but I thought on trying out R on Linux terminal and I felt the need of colorized output.
So I googled and found there’s a package that can be installed to colorize the R output.
The github repository for the Colorout package is Colorout

The steps to install Colorout is as follows:

  • git clone https://github.com/jalvesaq/colorout.git
  • R CMD INSTALL colorout

You would need to load the package every time you start working on R.
It can be done as follows:

  • start R console.
  • library(colorout)
