About

Just a simple TUI client for steamcmd. Allows for the graphical launching, updating, and downloading of steam games through a simple terminal client. Methodology informed by steam-cli.

Usage

Login with steamcmd first to cache your credentials (don't trust some random app with your passwords):

steamcmd
# Steam> login <user>
# Steam> quit

Launch the binary steam-tui, and rejoice :tada:. Help is in the client.

Unable to launch games? Pressing space will start a bare-bones steam client (no graphics) in the background and will let you launch games that need steam libraries or have some sort of DRM.

Requirements

steamcmd is required to launch steam-tui, as steam-tui is essentially just a graphical wrapper for this program. wine usage will be attempted if a native Linux game is not found.

Why ?

Because why not? Also, the Steam client seems to break on my Arch build. I have a GT 610, and barely anything graphical works- this is a nice work around.

Contributing

At this point, I am very much done with the project. I only really play Kerbal and 5 Dimensional Chess with Multiverse Time Travel, so additional work on this project is moot. If you buy me a coffee, I'd be happy to sink some more time into this.
