Note if doing echo’s, be sure to do an echo -e “stuff” instead of just echo “stuff”. In zsh (maybe bash too), I like to do the following for prompts:
(gold asking text, cyan (underlined) link, newline and white ‘>’ character waiting for user input)

print -nP "\e[0;33mAre you sure you want to do this?, y|n? If not, go here:\e[0m \e[4;36mhttps://randonplace.net/herpderp.php\n\e[1;37m>\e[0m "

Here is a list of the main colors etc.. I encourage you, if your going to using colors in a script or your .[zsh|bash]rc, you put this at the top and never deal with gross looking color codes.
