Subject: ANNOUNCE: vty-ui 1.0 released
Date: Saturday 5th March 2011 06:29:25 UTC (over 7 years ago)
I'm pleased to announce the release of version 1.0 of the vty-ui terminal user interface library. The vty-ui library is a complete interactive user interface development toolkit for terminal applications. It provides a wide range of "widgets" and infrastructure for implementing them, along with event loop and event handling facilities and text attribute management. Some examples of functionality provided by the library include: * Box layout widgets * Checkboxes and radio buttons * Scrolling lists * A filesystem browser * Dialog boxes * Tables * Single-line text editing This release is a complete rewrite and is therefore incompatible with applications built with previous releases. However, many of the same concepts -- even types -- are present in the rewrite. The library comes with a collection of demonstration programs (built with the 'demos' cabal flag) and a comprehensive User's Manual in addition to the standard Haddock API documentation.
