Stars - the number of stars that a project has on GitHub. Growth - month over month growth in stars.
Activity is a relative number indicating how actively a project is being developed. Recent commits have higher weight than older ones.
For example, an activity of 9.0 indicates that a project is amongst the top 10% of the most actively developed projects that we are tracking.
How to format output for a stand-alone display screen? Larger numbers, colors, redrawing the screen from the top left instead of printing a new line every time?

If you are looking for something more flexible that just printing to a terminal, take a look at Asciimatics and textual. Both are available from Pypi.
Ratatui: Build rich terminal user interfaces
2 projects | /r/rust | 30 May 2023
As someone that use both Python and Rust, it's hard to motivate myself to write TUI in Rust, because with Python we have the amazing textual.

I would also be interested in an argparse equivalent of this for my tool Library
coBib 4.0: a modern UI using Textualize libraries
4 projects | /r/Python | 20 May 2023
Today I released coBib 4.0, my console bibliography manager written in Python, which now uses rich and textual to provide a cohesive and modern user experience in both its CLI and TUI.

I don't think it is exactly what you're looking for, but Textual will be supporting something close to what I think you're after, soon. https://github.com/Textualize/textual
Ink: React for interactive command-line apps

For Golang there is Bubbletea , Textual  for Python and tui-rs for Rust .
Tried Textual to build a simple TUI - Skylab (a tool to track upcoming space launches)

I guess you looked at it a while ago because the docs are quite detailed with lots of examples.
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.
A beautiful TUI periodic table for GNU/Linux terminals (ptable) in C

Concerning your roadmap, you might wanna take some inspiration from Textual, it's a really mordern approach to TUIs. I understand that the level of abstraction is high and might be tasking to implement many of the ideas in there in C... and please fgs, don't think about doing the CSS shit.
Textual: A Python Text User Interface with Rich as the Renderer
5 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 16 Jun 2021
It's great to see some more competitors on the TUI front of the Python ecosystem! I recently tried multiple existing frameworks and was not particularly happy with the state.
Here are the main contenders for libraries that provide higher-level API than urwid/ncurses:
* Picotui, https://github.com/pfalcon/picotui
* Npyscreen, https://github.com/npcole/npyscreen
* py_cui, https://github.com/jwlodek/py_cui
Both Picotui and Npyscreen are relatively unmaintained / considered feature-full. py_cui seems to be in the best shape.
Fingers crossed for this project making it through, building on top of Rich gives it quite a bit of headstart. You can also sponsor @willmcgugan on Github .
