[Commented] (MNG-6220) Add CLI options to control color output

JIRA jira@apache.org

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MNG-6220?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15978416#comment-15978416 ]

Robert Scholte commented on MNG-6220:

Let's do it like all colors are controlled as well:
{{set MAVEN_OPTS=-Dstyle.color=enabled}}
This is one option to enable it for *every* build.

{{mvn  | less -R}}
{{mvn -Dstyle.color=enabled | less -R}}

> Currently, the only way to enable/disable color output is to use the batch-mode or log-file options.
> If a user wants colored output but no interactivity (ie: jenkins environment with the ansicolor plugin), there is no CLI option combination to support the use-case.
> I propose to add an option to control output coloring directly.

> --color=enabled <- color output always enabled
> --color=disabled <- color output always disabled
> --color=auto <- current behavior (default)
