    I'm using illwill for my TUI stuff (at least for now) and it works great for building menus and so on, I've just not figured out if there is some way to do string input other than maybe translating and converting all the keycodes and adding them to a string, and that sounds really cumbersome, especially to figure out a way to write non-ascii characters such as ü ö ä æ ø å and so on.

    Ooh, more Norwegians using Nim? I had a look in the issues of Illwill and came across this: Seems like there is a library of widgets and he has created a simple text input one that you could possibly modify to suit your needs (or just use outright). Not sure if it will support UTF-8 characters though, and I'm on my phone at my cabin right now so can't really check.
  • Is it worth learning nim? (In my case)
