Writing user interfaces without all that ugly mucking about in hyperspace

Project description

This library provides a framework for developing console applications using Python and curses.

This framework should be powerful enough to create everything from quick, simple programs to complex, multi-screen applications. It is designed to make doing the simple tasks very quick and to take much of the pain out of writing larger applications.

There is a very wide variety of default widgets - everything from simple text fields to more complex tree and grid views.

I have used versions of this library for private scripts and small applications for around ten years. As a result, it is fairly mature.

There is a mailing list available at!forum/npyscreen/

Latest Changes: Version 2.0pre57 fixes color support - it should now be possible to display a terminal with a different color background. Text widgets have some additional color options.

Version 2.0pre52 fixes compatibility with python2.6, 3.0 and 3.1. All other versions should be unaffected.

Version 2.0pre50 enables basic mouse support. Note that the Apple terminal does not handle mouse events correctly.
