Curses::UI data viewer


An example application with Curses::UI.

After much sweating (also due to the rising temperatures in Rome) I managed to get to an acceptable point with a data viewer application using Curses::UI:

Local version here.

I’ll probably comment parts of the code in some future posts, for now:

  • start by running the program
  • top line allows writing a shell command that is supposed to produce valid JSON in standard output
  • when data is available, it is shown in the bottom part. The middle part allows selecting items in an array (if the data is an array), then it’s assumed to contain objects.

Well… enough sweating for now, stay safe!
