A Rust library to enable getting terminal sizes and dimensions



First, add the following to your Cargo.toml:

term_size = "0.1"

Next, add this to your crate root:

extern crate term_size;

To get the dimensions of your terminal window, simply use the following:

fn main() {
  if let Some((w, h)) = term_size::dimensions() {
    println!("Width: {}\nHeight: {}", w, h);
  } else {
    println!("Unable to get term size :(")
