TermFX: terminal programming for lua

What is it?

TermFX is a module that a program written in lua can use to create text based user interfaces. At its core it uses termbox, but provides a more lua like API, and some additional stuff like offscreen buffers and xterm color management.

what has changed from version to version.

If you want to know a little more (even though it is not all that relevant any more to the lua version), you can check out the original termbox.h.

Download

You can get TermFX 0.7-1 by clicking on this link, or by installing it from the luarocks repository. If you fetch it from here, the included README gives hints on how to build it.

There is also a mercurial repository at https://hg.tset.de/public/termfx which is read-only, but also gets changes I make between the releases.
