VisualT is a cross-platform C library that makes creating UTF8 text-based UIs easier and faster.
For a quick overview of the main features, check out the Basic Concepts page.
If you appreciated the work, leave a star on the GitHub repo.
Has no dependencies other than standard libraries.
It works wherever UTF-8 encoded text can be displayed properly, and that includes even Windows 10! See on the faq.
Makes no assumptions about the output, it just outputs text.
It’s much more lightweight than more feature-packed libraries like NCurses.
Good CMake code is one of the main objectives.
The documentation is still work in progress, but the main sections are content complete. That includes:
VisualT’s dependencies are managed by the Hunter Package Manager:
Hunter is a CMake-powered package manager, it’s completely written in CMake. Other than being inherently cross-patform, it offers a CMake-friendly interface for every available package, which is a quite valuable feature. It is also committed to complying with modern CMake best practices. If you’re starting a new project, give it a try, and spread the word!
