Ncurses

Build Status

This is currently in BETA.

There will be bugs. C Macros are missing, enums are slightly renamed. If you have any trouble, or think that something should be fixed, then please create a bug report.

Variants of this package

This package can be build in three variants:

  • minimal: The minimal (which is the default configuration) configurations only links the ncursesw library.

  • panels: The panels configuration additionally links the panelw library.

  • full: The full configuration additionally links the formw and menuw library.

To use a specific configuration in your projects, depend on this package by adding the following config snippet to your project's dub.json:

"subConfigurations": {
    "ncurses": "full"
}

Building on macOS

The stock ncurses libraries on macOS don't include the wide libraries. Thus the full ncurses version needs to be installed with Homebrew. Homebrew installs ncurses below /usr/local/opt/ncurses, where the dub configuration will pick it up.

First install Homebrew using the instructions on the web site, then you can add the ncurses package with

brew install ncurses
