Build Output Colorizer
Build Output Colorizer applies syntax highlighting to the VSCode Output window, restoring colors to build diagnostics that (especially with CMake builds) are stripped away.
This no-code extension associates syntax highlighting rules to the Output window scope, and uses regexes to select and highlight patterns that are probably error/warning diagnostics.
This extensions should not have any prerequisites or requirements. The highlighting rules should work with any theme, but the colors are not theme-based (though they are customizable via settings).

This also allows for customization to your preferences.
This extension has a quite limited set of syntax highlighting rules since normally the objective of compiler diagnostics is to draw the user's eye to the highest priority items.
Contributions or suggestions for improvement are welcome. Please raise an issue at the extension's repository.
