Microservices! They are everywhere, or at least, the term is. When should you use a microservice architecture? What factors should be considered when making that decision? Do the benefits outweigh the costs? Why is everyone so excited about them, anyway?  Brought to you in partnership with IBM.

Colorized output is one of those small things that is easy to de-prioritize, but once it's done you can't figure out why you didn't do it earlier. The code to colorize your results is very simple, and there's even a lib, colorize, if you prefer to simply include a dependency instead.

Of course, if you prefer to stick with non-colorized results that's possible as well - simply set the environment variable EXPECTATIONS_COLORIZE to 'false'.
