Terminal.Gui .NET Core Code scanning - action Version Code Coverage Downloads License Bugs

The current, stable, release of Terminal.Gui is v1.x. It is stable, rich, and broadly used. The team is now focused on designing and building a significant upgrade we're referring to as v2. Therefore:

  • v1 is now in maintenance mode, meaning we will accept PRs for v1.x (the develop branch) only for issues impacting existing functionality.
  • All new development happens on the v2_develop branch. See the V2 discussion here.
  • Developers are encouraged to continue building on v1.x until we announce v2 is stable.

Terminal.Gui: A toolkit for building rich console apps for .NET, .NET Core, and Mono that works on Windows, the Mac, and Linux/Unix.

Sample app

Quick Start

Paste these commands into your favorite terminal on Windows, Mac, or Linux. This will install the Terminal.Gui.Templates, create a new "Hello World" TUI app, and run it.

(Press CTRL-Q to exit the app)

dotnet new --install Terminal.Gui.templates
dotnet new tui -n myproj
cd myproj
dotnet run


Showcase & Examples

  • UI Catalog - The UI Catalog project provides an easy to use and extend sample illustrating the capabilities of Terminal.Gui. Run dotnet run --project UICatalog to run the UI Catalog.
  • C# Example - Run dotnet run in the Example directory to run the C# Example.
  • F# Example - An example showing how to build a Terminal.Gui app using F#.
  • Reactive Example - A sample app that shows how to use System.Reactive and ReactiveUI with Terminal.Gui. The app uses the MVVM architecture that may seem familiar to folks coming from WPF, Xamarin Forms, UWP, Avalonia, or Windows Forms. In this app, we implement the data bindings using ReactiveUI WhenAnyValue syntax and Pharmacist — a tool that converts all events in a NuGet package into observable wrappers.
  • PowerShell's Out-ConsoleGridView - OCGV sends the output from a command to an interactive table.
  • F7History - Graphical Command History for PowerShell (built on PowerShell's Out-ConsoleGridView).
  • PoshRedisViewer - A compact Redis viewer module for PowerShell written in F#.
  • PoshDotnetDumpAnalyzeViewer - dotnet-dump UI module for PowerShell.
