Once upon a time, in a repository long deleted, there was a
project called "clayers" which was a programmers summer project,
in which to create an easy way to make games that relied on the
console. The repo start of nicely, but after more and more
developing the project started to get messier and messier, while
still being unfinished and containing many bugs. The author (me)
decided that he would start a new project, which he named "scone"
Scone (Simple CONsole Engine) is a small library to make it
easier for developers to make CLI applications efficiently
(intentionally/originally for console games), cross-platform.
(Please note that it is not fully cross-platform yet, currently
only working properly on Windows).
* Efficient writing to the console/terminal
* Keyboard input (currently only Windows)
For anyone on a Windows machine, you can test a few examples that
gives the basic idea of what scone can do here:
However, I have one big problem which I cannot overcome, namely
keyboard input on POSIX. I would very much ask for help in this
area. Judging from Adam's terminal.d, input on POSIX seems to be
this huge beast which I cannot slay myself. Feedback and/or help
very much appreciated!
