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. It is mainly delivered to develop UNIX-based applications.
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 TUI widgets in plain curses or even with the additional libraries for a project that heavily manipulates screen.
The goal of MYTUI is to provide a portable, robust, RAD UI tool for developing front end of large scale Client/Server applications (such as core-banking transaction system) or stand alone text-based applications.
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 other than painful pointer and structure to let you access all objects. You'll enjoy programming even you're a newbie.
