      Description

      Grails 2.0 uses ANSI chars to format its output nicer. But the Eclipse console doesn't support it.

      Would be nice to make the output look better.
      Also maybe intercept reading of input somehow to popup some dialog instead of using the console IO.

        Description Grails 2.0 is using the jline library to manage its interaction with the console. Perhaps this presents an opportunity to plug in a custom terminal implementation to may output look better in STS and to be able to popup a real Eclipse dialog when a question is being asked in the console.
