BearLibTerminal is a pseudoterminal window library

Project description

About

BearLibTerminal is a library that creates a terminal-like window facilitating flexible textual output and uncomplicated input processing.

A lot of roguelike games intentionally use asketic textual or pseudographic visual style. However, native output via the command line interface ususally have a few annoying shortcomings like low speed or palette and font restrictions. Using an extended character set (several languages at once or complicated pseudographics) may also be tricky. BearLibTerminal solves that by providing it’s own window with a grid of character cells and simple yet powerful API for configuration and textual output.
