Description: MYTUI is a TUI widget library based on curses. It is written in C and provides many ready-to-use widgets for rapid application development of text user interfaces.
Basically a curses or ncurses library can give a framework to create nice looking text mode user interface.However, it can be pretty difficult to write and maintain complex GUI widgets in plain curses or even with the additional libraries for a project heavily manipulates screen.
The goal of MYTUI is to construct a portable, robust, RAD UI tool for terminal based systems (such as core-banking transaction system ) in Client/Server environment. Besides this it can also be a excellent choice for common curses application development.
Unlike most similar tools, MYTUI shields the applications from complexities of all widgets to make interfaces more comprehensible and keep the operations more secure. MYTUI delivers handler to let you access all objects other than painful pointer and structure. You'll enjoy programming even yu're a newbie.
Another advantage of MYTUI is its integrated widgets designing and deploying tool in a WYSIWYG(What You See Is What You Get) way. It can also generate neccessary sources codes. All these will extremely save your workload, especially in a large-scale project involving hundreds of transactions.
