//scone, Simple Console Engine is a Windows console API, made for easier CLI application development. https://github.com/vladdeSV/scone

Today, at v1.1.0, some pretty big additions for scone were introduced, the two main points being
 * UI libray
 * Localization

Biggest addition is the UI library, which allows for much simpler ways to handle certain elements of an application. This includes simple labels, text fields, options etc, which can be altered in a variety of ways. Elements are accessed in the same manor as android applications does it `auto t = ui.elementById("screenText"); t.color = Color.yellow;`. Example of login screen: http://i.imgur.com/s6eSIDW.gif

Second point is localization. Different keyboards have different layouts. This is why .locale files are introduced, which follows a csv pattern. Corresponding key matches a lowercase and uppercase/shifted character (read as ubytes). For example in en_US.locale: "key_2 2 @" can be found. Currently there is only one .locale (en_US). These will hopefully be expanded upon soon.

Feedback is always appreciated!
