Hi Rickard,

It is not curses-based, but you might want to check out the lux-term library:



It is available via raco:

`raco pkg install lux-charterm`

Lux-term is based on an older library, charterm, and the author of the newer
library suggests looking at the original's documentation too:



Best regards,
