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'.
