User interfaces in console (dialog like)

P: n/a
Hi all.

I need to provide to my users a graphical interface to be used from
os' command line.
Initially I thought something equivalent to Unix dialog, and googling
around I have found Python Dialog
(http://pythondialog.sourceforge.net/). This would be the perfect
solution for me if it could be cross platform. However, it doesn't
work on Windows, just on Linux/Unix.

Do you guys know an alternative that fits my needings without moving
from Python?

Thanks,
-ng

Do you only need to work on windows? if so you could use
http://newcenturycomputers.net/projects/wconio.html to build your own
gui.

We used this for our inhouse ldap admin script.

It doesn't depend on the language. There aren't truely portable graphic
interface libraries, which show more than a coloured rectangle.
For *nix, there is also curses-extra, which offers various widgets
(textview,combobox,radio and checkbuttons and so on).

Turbo Vision in dos used to be really good. There's a python binding to the
free version here:

(I haven't tried it)

Wow, I was just reminiscing about my old TurboVision days... I second
the recommendation.
