ABOUT

Built on top of ncurses, libviper is a convenience layer and a GTK-like framework for rapidly creating console programs. It takes care of setting up the screen, initializing GPM for normal terminal use or Xterm. The screen itself can be painted with custom wallpaper (line art of course). On top of that libviper managds two "decks" of windows per screen. These decks are analogous to a deck of cards. The decks can be rotated and the window on top has default focus. The managed deck can be manipulated by the mouse and is where normal windows reside. On top of that is another deck, the unmanaged deck. In terms of Z-order, the last window on the unmanaged deck resides just above the topmost window on the managed deck. The unmanaged deck is useful for creating menus and user dialogs. It's also well suited for installing hotkeys since user input propogates to the unmanaged deck first.

Building libviper is typically pretty straight forward.
