The vty package
- 'ghc-options: -O2' is rarely needed. Check that it is giving a real benefit and not just imposing longer compile times on your users.
- 'ghc-options: -threaded' has no effect for libraries. It should only be used for executables.
- 'cc-options: -O[n]' is generally not needed. When building with optimisations Cabal automatically adds '-O2' for C code. Setting it yourself interferes with the --disable-optimization flag.
vty is terminal GUI library in the niche of ncurses. It is intended to be easy to use, have no confusing corner cases, and good support for common terminal types.
Included in the source distribution is a program test/interactive_terminal_test.hs that demonstrates the various features.
Developers: See the Graphics.Vty module.
Users: See the Graphics.Vty.Config module.
If your terminal is not behaving as expected the results of the vty-interactive-terminal-test executable should be sent to the Vty maintainter to aid in debugging the issue.
Notable infelicities: Assumes UTF-8 character encoding support by the terminal; Poor signal handling; Requires terminfo.
