    Awesome! My recommendation is always the terminal interface for Tetris

  • Scout APM

    Less time debugging, more time building. Scout APM allows you to find and fix performance issues with no hassle. Now with error monitoring and external services monitoring, Scout is a developer's best friend when it comes to application development.

    There's a slick little Haskell library that does something similar called reflex-vty:


    One thing neither of these libraries appear to have done yet that I would really like is create a more compact window rendering. Currently each window gets a 1-character border. What I would like is something that saves space by collapsing adjacent windows' borders into a single character instead of having two redundant borders next to each other. Of course I get why they do it the way they do, but terminals are often more constrained for space and with complex UIs you can lose a fair amount due to these unnecessary borders. That would be the next thing I'd hack on to improve these kinds of libraries. But alas...too many fun projects to hack on and not enough hours in the day.

  • GitHub repo vty-ui

    A terminal user interface programming library similar to graphical interfaces such as GTK and QT. (DEPRECATED, see https://github.com/jtdaugherty/brick)
