Is there a curses type library?


#1

Can anyone suggest a library that offers ncurses type terminal control? On Haxelib I see ‘CUI’ but it seems to be dead, ‘console-out’ doesn’t work on Windows and ‘haxeui-pdcurses’ seems to be a dormant alpha project.

TIA

https://github.com/haxeui/haxeui-pdcurses works just fine - just keep in mind its the structure of a haxeui backend, so almost certainly wont exhibit the externs you are looking for. hxPDCurses sounds pretty swish, maybe these (limited externs) might help? https://github.com/haxeui/haxeui-pdcurses/blob/master/haxe/ui/backend/pdcurses/lib/PDCurses.hx

I implemented it alot of it, then went down a lower pdc route (as it made more sense for haxeui - ie, the WINDOW struct)

Cheers,
Ian

EDIT: i mean i didnt need the WINDOW struct or the “windowing” system of n/pdcurses.

Thanks for clearing that up, I’ll take a look.
