Tilde Terminal Toolkit


The libt3widget library provides a C++ dialog toolkit. It provides objects for dialogs and widgets like buttons, text fields, check boxes etc., to facilitate easy construction of dialog based programs for Un*x terminals.


libt3widget version 0.5.2 released

This release fixes searching in text with non-ASCII characters.


libt3widget version 0.5.0 & 0.5.1 released

This release drops the dependency on libsigc++ when compiling with a C++11 compiler, and introduces an extra function for thread-safe termination of the main loop. Furthermore a small number of annoying glitches were fixed.


libt3widget version 0.4.7 released

This release fixes several bugs in memory handling and handling of hotkeys of invisible widgets.



The source for libt3widget is available here. Older releases are available here. libt3widget requires GNU libtool and a C++ compiler to be compiled. Furthermore, it requires libpcre, libtranscript, libt3key, libt3window, libunistring and libsigc++ (2.0 or newer). If either XCB or Xlib are available, as well as either dlopen/dlsym/dlclose or libtool's libltdl, the X11 integration module can be built. When GPM is available, it will be used to provide mouse support on the Linux console.

Binary packages for libt3widget are available from the Tilde repositories.
