• Why not?

  • To improve and extend the capabilities of CLI and TUI applications.

  • Terminals emulators have always been and always will be!

What about Windows support?
  • Only the new Windows Terminal seems to have proper ANSI support and mordern terminal emulator features.

  • Drawing images and animations doesn’t work completely well with Python for Windows. See Known Issues.

  • If stuck on Windows and want to use all features, you could use WSL + Windows Terminal.

Why are colours not properly reproduced?
  • Some terminals support 24-bit colors but have a 256-color pallete. This limits color reproduction.

Why are images out of scale?
Why does my program get garbage input (possibly also written to the screen) or phantom keystrokes?
