Build Status


A simple Crystal UI framework for terminal interfaces backed by termbox.

It still in a pre-alpha state, API is not stable at all and this shard exists mainly because I'm using this lib in more than one project. In fact the repository is a fork from QueryIt, the original project were it was born.

So if you are brave enough to add this shard as a dependency into your project I suggest to use the commit: ... attribute into the textui dependency entry on your shard.yml.


  1. Add the dependency to your shard.yml:

        github: hugopl/textui
  2. Run shards install


Example soon...

  4. Push to the branch (git push origin my-new-feature)
  5. Create a new Pull Request

Feature suggestions are welcome, write them in github issues.
