The vty package

[Tags: bsd3, library, program]

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.

Development Notes

Under NixOS

After installing ncurses to user env.

LIBRARY_PATH=$HOME/.nix-profile/lib/ cabal configure --enable-tests --extra-lib-dirs=$HOME/.nix-profile/lib
LIBRARY_PATH=$HOME/.nix-profile/lib/ cabal build
LIBRARY_PATH=$HOME/.nix-profile/lib/ cabal test

Coverage

As of last testing, profiling causes issues with coverage when enabled. To evaluate coverage configure as follows:

rm -rf dist ; cabal configure --enable-tests --enable-library-coverage \
  --disable-library-profiling \
  --disable-executable-profiling

Profiling

rm -rf dist ; cabal configure --enable-tests --disable-library-coverage \
  --enable-library-profiling \
  --enable-executable-profiling
