ncurses-rs Build Status

This is a very thin wrapper around the ncurses TUI lib.


The compiled library will go to the target directory.

cargo build

Note that you must to have the ncurses library installed and linkable for ncurses-rs to work. On Linux, this should be trivial. On OS X, consider installing ncurses using Homebrew. (Note that you have to force Homebrew to link the library to /usr/local/lib: brew link --force ncurses and set that path to LIBRARY_PATH environmental variable.)


Examples are built by cargo build. To run them, use cargo run --example ex_<NUMBER>. Example numbers increase along with the complexity of the example.

Current examples:
1. Hello World
2. Basic Input & Attributes
3. Simple Pager
4. Window Movement
5. Menu Library (requires rust nightly)
6. Pager & Syntax Highlighting
7. Basic Input & Attributes (Unicode)
8. Special ACS Characters
