A little terminal UI package for the browser.

Malison is a small Dart library for drawing old school ASCII terminals in the browser. I harvested it from my roguelike game, Hauberk and it's aimed primarily at web games ASCII graphics. Think of it like curses for the web.

Using it #

Add it to your package's pubspec:

dependencies:
  malison: any

Then use the library:

import 'dart:html';

import 'package:malison/malison.dart';

void main() {
  // Create or query a <canvas> element to bind it to.
  var canvas = new CanvasElement();
  document.body.children.add(canvas);

  // Create a new terminal. CanvasTerminal uses your browser's fonts.
  // RetroTerminal uses a built in DOS-style Code Page 437 font.
  var terminal = new RetroTerminal.dos(80, 40, canvas);

  // You can draw strings at given positions.
  terminal.writeAt(0, 0, "This is a terminal!");

  // You can control the foreground and background color.
  terminal.writeAt(0, 1, "This is blue on green", Color.blue, Color.green);

  // You can also draw individual glyphs -- character+color units.
  terminal.drawGlyph(3, 4, new Glyph.fromCharCode(CharCode.blackHeartSuit,
      Color.red, Color.white));

  // When you're done drawing, tell it to render all of the changes. It renders
  // in batches for performance.
  terminal.render();
}
