Re: Text based UI - framework core, example hub&spokes and input related questions


I am a bit confused about the direction you are pursuing.. comments bellow:

Yep, that is what I would do.

Wait a minute, what is the hierarchy here? Are you inheriting the TUI classes from the GUI stuff?

If I got this correctly and you are using the GUI as a base for textual interface I tried to do it the other way.
Creating (or improving) a common base classes for GUI and TUI to inherit from.

You can see the work in progress here on the newtui branch:

http://fedorapeople.org/cgit/msivak/public_git/anaconda.git/ (once fedorapeople refreshes it)


git clone git://fedorapeople.org/~msivak/anaconda.git

It is probably not working atm, but I am also getting close :)
