Expand description

Termion is a pure Rust, bindless library for low-level handling, manipulating and reading information about terminals. This provides a full-featured alternative to Termbox.

Termion aims to be simple and yet expressive. It is bindless, meaning that it is not a front-end to some other library (e.g., ncurses or termbox), but a standalone library directly talking to the TTY.

Supports Redox, Mac OS X, and Linux (or, in general, ANSI terminals).
