Since repl.it uses a Linux compiler, yes, it is possible: https://gist.github.com/vratiu/9780109

for example, if you want black text: "\033[0;30mThis text will be black"

try replacing \033 to x1b @AbhayBhat

Hello. You can use ANSI escape codes (the escape code is \x1b):

cout << "\x1b[31mRed Text\x1b[0mNormal text";
