Items of note
- Audio from the June 28th Pony Development sync is available: https://sync-recordings.ponylang.io/r/2022_06_28.m4a
- Version 0.51.1 of ponylang/ponyc has been released. See the release notes for more details.
I’ve started an external package that offers enhanced terminal application development APIs. This offers compatibility with the
ANSINotify types while defining a core API that offers more advanced capability.
So far I have been testing on macOS using Terminal.app. I would love to get some help running the example apps on other platforms (Linux, Windows). In particular, there are two examples that I would like to get feedback on:
examples/formattingwhich can be used to test the various text formatting options supported.
examples/mousingwhich can be used to test mouse input handling
