tui-rs v0.3.0-beta.2 Release Notes

Release Date: 2018-09-23 // over 1 year ago
  • 🔄 Changed

    • ✂ Remove custom termion backends. This is motivated by the fact that termion structs are meant to be combined/wrapped to provide additional 👍 functionalities to the terminal (e.g AlternateScreen, Mouse support, ...). Thus providing exclusive types do not make a lot of sense and give a false hint that additional features cannot be used together. The recommended approach is now to create your own version of stdout:
    let stdout = io::stdout().into_raw_mode()?;
    let stdout = MouseTerminal::from(stdout);
    let stdout = AlternateScreen::from(stdout);

    and then to create the corresponding termion backend:

    let backend = TermionBackend::new(stdout);

    The resulting code is more verbose but it works with all combinations of ➕ additional termion features.
