add: Exec, program.ReleaseTerminal and RestoreTerminal to re-use input and terminal #237

merged 22 commits into from Apr 12, 2022


Copy link

@muesli muesli commented Feb 21, 2022

Program.ReleaseTerminal makes Bubble Tea release the input / terminal, so users can spawn a sub-command. Program.RestoreTerminal sets the input reader up again and triggers a repaint.

Exec is provided as a Cmd interface, and should be the primary method for running a blocking exec.Command from within Bubble Tea.

Fixes #171.

Played around with this for a few minutes this morning and found an issue. I haven't had time to dig into this yet but figured I'd raise it here in case this is going to be merged imminently -- I saw some activity on it yesterday.

I'm running a program that is normally terminated by Ctrl+C but accepts both SIGINT and SIGTERM. If I tell it to terminate by sending it a kill then the program terminates and I'm back into my TUI. However, if I terminate it via Ctrl+C in the terminal where the program was spawned, I do not go back into my TUI...instead I'm simply left at the CLI.

I followed this only enough to know that it's not hitting the update function's handling of a ctrl+c KeyMsg.

@jefferai Wow, thank you. We were actually planning in merging this. Will look into this, I have some theories as to what’s happening.

  • As a task runner TUI, I want to run a program (might be interactive or not) and

  • show it's log outputs to the user,

  • as if it was run natrually.

  • Upon termintation 0 or !=0, I want to give the user the possibilitiy to keep staring at the logs,

  • but upon pressing a specified button, e.g. q or esc

  • return to the teaTUI

What do you think? Does it make sense? Is that something that you could easily wrap onto this PR (if blunt asking is allowed 😄)?
