rbcurse 0.1.2 gem released

with 3 comments

Version 0.1.2 of rbcurse (Ruby Curses Widgets) has been released. Minor enhancements:

  • search in textview, textarea with wrap-around, case insensitive and highlighting searched text
  • table can have nil data to start with
  • tabbed pane has  ok button by default, can set ok_cancel etc
  • table autosizing – required for adhoc queries
  • table horizontal scrolling – if more columns than can be shown
  • Table editing when more columns than viewable in table
  • Confirm dialog, normal mnemonics for buttons (in addition to Alt-o, Alt-c etc)

I expect to release 0.1.3 by Feb 28th, with more minor tweaks. See

  1. Great work on this gem! I’m going to be using it for a sort of MUD client (specific to Simutronics games) – it’s really going to make my life easier!

  2. Do let me know of you run into any problems. I can fix asap. Or if something *minor* needs to be added.

    However, I am moving house so further development is paused for a month or so. But i should have time to fix a bug or 2, if anything comes up.

    Do keep me posted, would love to hear.
