A library for creating CUI/TUI interfaces with pre-built widgets in python.
Easily build text-based user interfaces on both Linux and Windows.
py_cui is a python library meant to simplify writing command line user interfaces in python. It is built upon the
curses module, which is traditionally a unix-specific, however, you may use windows-curses to gain compatibility for
py_cui on windows.
The main advantage
py_cui has over typical text-based user interface builders is that it relies on widgets and a grid layout manager like most traditional graphical user interfaces. You may define a grid size, and then drop predefined widgets onto it into specific grid locations. Widgets can also be stretched accross multiple grid rows and columns. If you've ever made a Tkinter GUI, you will feel right at home.
Below are some screenshots/gifs of programs written with py_cui. Additional (simpler) examples are available in the
examples/ directory of this repository.
py_cui_2048 - A command line version of the classic 2048 game
py_cui_2048 is a demo of using
py_cui to build simple CUI games and applications. The entire game was made in under 400 lines of code.
unipkg - A command line utility that will allow for managing all installed package managers on your system through one cli interface
unipkg is currently an in-progress project, check back in the future to see a screenshot, and more information.
pyautogit - A command line interface for managing git repositories
pyautogit is the first larger scale project written in
py_cui. Feel free to use it as a guide to programming with
