That's great to know but you still need to make sure the process generating the output isn't trying to outsmart you.

For instance ag (silver surfer) needs you to specify `ag --color` otherwise it will detect you are piping it and disable colors.

And if I remember correctly, grep needs a `grep --color=always` to achieve the same.
