The ConsoleOutput MediaWiki extension provides a new tag, ‎<console>, which can be used to format and colorize terminal output.

Its purpose is to accurately display colors that appear on terminals, and provide a means to highlight commands that a user types so that they are easy to see in relation to program output. This extension is used by Funtoo Linux for its installation and other documentation.

Wikis Using ConsoleOutput[edit]

The Funtoo Linux wiki uses the ConsoleOutput extension for rendering interactive console sessions in system documentation.

Suggested Use[edit]

It's generally recommended to use a template named console which in turn uses the <console> tag, such as the Console template on the Funtoo Linux wiki.
