    A new kind of terminal

    I still haven't seen anybody really try to replace it other than even this, which is really just skipping it for the user interface part. Sadly even it hasn't been touched since 2017.

  • notcurses

    blingful character graphics/TUI library. definitely not curses.

    notcurses is the most viable future for mixed text-and-graphics, and those concepts run on many terminals today, cross-platform, and over ssh without an X display.

  • InfluxDB

    Access the most powerful time series database as a service. Ingest, store, & analyze all types of time series data in a fully-managed, purpose-built database. Keep data forever with low-cost storage and superior data compression.

  • jexer

    (No one likes Java for terminals but me these days, but here is one other library that can do some of the tricks notty is talking about.)
