  • Build a password manager with Rust - Part 2
    3 projects | dev.to | 1 Jun 2024
    I'm going to anticipate a "problem" we are going to encounter. For my use case, I would like the user to press Q or Enter to confirm or not that she wants to save a weak password. From what I understood, it's not straightforward to do this with the same io::stdin we used before because of the line-buffered nature of most terminals. Meaning, we have to wait for the user to press Enter to read the input. So, we are going to use the crossterm crate that allow us to read single chars from user's input. We can add it with: cargo add crossterm

  • Question: In your experience, is Helix always more snappy/responsive than Neovim?
    4 projects | /r/HelixEditor | 8 Dec 2023
    I have this feeling with all rust apps using crossterm crate as their backend like GitUI for example
  • Canonical way to handle concurrent events with crates that don't model that use case
    1 project | /r/rust | 21 May 2023
    I guess you could use EventStream like in this example
  • [2022 Day 14 (Part 1/2) [Rust] Made a small toy
    2 projects | /r/adventofcode | 16 May 2023
    Made a small toy using crossterm that simulates the falling sand using the rules laid out by day 14. Bit late to the party but was pretty fun. The moment I saw the prompt I was fully intent on making some sort of visualization for this after getting the solution.
  • How difficult is ncurses?
    7 projects | /r/commandline | 17 Apr 2023
    There are plenty of terminal UI libraries that are actually nice to work with. For Python, there's Textual and PyTermGUI. For Rust, there's ratatui and Cursive (or, if you want something a bit lower level, crosster or termion). For Go, there's bubbletea.
  • AMDGPU_TOP v0.1.2 - switch to crossterm-backend, add simple fdinfo viewer
    6 projects | /r/linux_gaming | 4 Apr 2023
    Switching the backend of Cursive to crossterm removed dependence on ncurses
  • How can I create 'time' in my game loop?
    1 project | /r/learnrust | 19 Oct 2022
    I don't know where to start, CrossTerm can read events asynchronously with tokio https://github.com/crossterm-rs/crossterm/blob/master/examples/event-stream-tokio.rs , but I don't have any idea what that really means, I am coming from the HTML Canvas and TypeScript. I want the most simple and basic method possible. Cheers!
  • termion development status?
    2 projects | /r/rust | 15 Oct 2022
    Just wondering if anyone has any insight into the current development and maintenance of termion? It currently has 67 issues and 24 merge requests and no code activity has happened since Sep 27 2021, so nothing in over a year. I am of course grateful for the existing project, but just somewhat concerned that it ends up being abandoned or forgotten seeing as it is one of the premiere tui libraries written purely in Rust (other being crossterm).
  • I made a terminal-based flashcard app - with incremental reading!
    2 projects | /r/super_memo | 20 Sep 2022
    I might make a gui frontend in the future, but for now i'll focus on the terminal. The terminal doesn't mean it doesnt support mac or windows though, they have terminals too! And the library used for accepting key-input is crossterm which supports windows!
