ncpop : a very simple ncurses popup engine ========================================== ncpop is a little library to create your own ncurses menus in python. This can be (slightly) useful for command-line extermists who use minimal windows manager. Especially if you are tired to look for a key combination for each wifi network you know or too lazy to connect by hand. There is a small function provided to relaunch the app in a new terminal of your choice. It allows the application to be run from a key combination. You can also match the terminal name with your favorite wm to apply special appearances to your popups. Note about security : some of the useful utilities which can be written using ncprop, must be run with root privileges. This means you should be careful when writing such an application. I suggest moving your program somewhere safe, like /usr/local/bin (not as a symlink !), and specifying full path name as external programs names. Then, if you are confident in your app's security you can add it in the NOPASSWD list of your sudoers (something bad still can happen, use it at your own risk).
