termdash alternatives and similar packages
Based on the "Advanced Console UIs" category
Rich interactive widgets for terminal-based UIs written in Go
Do you think we are missing an alternative of termdash or a related project?
Termdash is a cross-platform customizable terminal based dashboard.
This rewrite focuses on code readability, maintainability and testability, see the [design goals](doc/design_goals.md). It aims to achieve the following [requirements](doc/requirements.md). See the [high-level design](doc/hld.md) for more details.
Public API and status
The public API surface is documented in the wiki.
Private packages can be identified by the presence of the /private/ directory in their import path. Stability of the private packages isn't guaranteed and changes won't be backward compatible.
There might still be breaking changes to the public API, at least until the project reaches version 1.0.0. Any breaking changes will be published in the [changelog](CHANGELOG.md).
Current feature set
- Full support for terminal window resizing throughout the infrastructure.
- Customizable layout, widget placement, borders, margins, padding, colors, etc.
- Dynamic layout changes at runtime.
- Binary tree and Grid forms of setting up the layout.
- Focusable containers and widgets.
- Processing of keyboard and mouse events.
- Periodic and event driven screen redraw.
- A library of widgets, see below.
- UTF-8 for all text elements.
- Drawing primitives (Go functions) for widget development with character and sub-character resolution.
To install this library, run the following:
go get -u github.com/mum4k/termdash
The usage of most of these elements is demonstrated in [termdashdemo.go](termdashdemo/termdashdemo.go). To execute the demo:
go run github.com/mum4k/termdash/termdashdemo/termdashdemo.go
Please refer to the Termdash wiki for all documentation and resources.
Allows users to interact with the application, each button press runs a callback function. Run the [buttondemo](widgets/button/buttondemo/buttondemo.go).
