reddit comment: "Wow! Terminal can look THIS good??"
@fribbledom how the heck are you doing that gradient effect on the progress bar?
It's a blend in the LUV colorspace:
@fribbledom I mean, are you doing anything fancier than just writing consecutive block characters with different colors?
if it doesn't beat Turbo Vision i ain't interested
Turbo Vision is indeed a lost framework & piece of art, that we would desperately need on the command line these days. It has been and still is so far ahead of everything that came after it, it's almost unbelievable.
@fribbledom I'm so tempted to nerdsnipe myself into making a modern text GUI that's terminal friendly and isn't just ncurses horrors :)
@brion @fribbledom I'm sure there is still plenty of scope to create a modern terminal based DE that can call up a X (or Wayland whatever) window for 24bit colour graphical applications, and for everything else, a well designed keyboard (& mouse/trackpad) friendly navigable environ that can perform all your daily requirements in a lightweight and slick experience...
@fribbledom people just have no imagination
