Curses::Toolkit - modern toolkit for old-school GUIs

Curses - GUI in the Terminal

For us hackers, developers, IT geeks, sysadmins, or enlightened citizens, the holy Terminal is the best and only acceptable mean of interaction with the computer.

Curses is powerful but very low-level. Sadly, there are only few CPAN modules to abstract a bit Curses and try to provide a better way of creating curses GUIs.

Enter Curses::Toolkit, the new modern toolkit to write old-school terminal based GUIs ! It's not 100% complete, but provides a lot of features you'll find nowhere else, like GTK-like boxing and packing, mouse support, asynchronous animation, and so on. Oh and it's full of fun, as this talk will be, hopefully.
