Beautification of console with npm dependency

While submitting a paper in one of the conference I have observed that its not just the code which they see while accepting the submission, but also the efforts you have added to show that the code has different elements which makes it unique And I am not talking about the DS, dynamic programming concepts which are by no choice are important and shall be considered while creating a framework. I will discussing in this post about a console beautification dependency of which can be added to project in very less time and presents a very beautiful welcome note before of the run. This can be a simple and quick add on to your framework, so I thought of adding the same in my project as well.

Soft assertions in protractor based typescript automation framework

How many of us has seen that while running code at once glance if the code fails at some step, then other test steps which meant to run post that step is marked as skipped in the final result?

Also, how about rephrasing the same sentence such that the code does not run and marked as skipped in the final run-results challenging the law of ‘fail-fast’. By the execution, we can not infer whether the code was wrong or the functionality dint work as it was an incomplete run for the one who ran it. I am sure many of the QA folks can relate to this. To be more precise, can we relate to this console screenshot.
