Ticket #12339 (closed Feature Requests: fixed)
Propose users given way to disable blink in colour output
|Reported by:||Tony Lewis <tonyelewis@…>||Owned by:||renficiaud|
Thanks very much for the color_output option; I find it really helps make the test output much easier to decipher.
However I find the blink style that is applied to unexpected serious errors to be unhelpful. It suffers the widely acknowledged design problems with a blink style (eg as mentioned here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blink_element). The problems are particularly exacerbated by the fact that the message often contains essential technical details that are much harder due to them intermittently disappearing.
Please may I propose that this blink style is removed from the default colour scheme or that at least the user is given some option that allows them to turn off blink without sacrificing colour?
Thanks very much.
