Ncurses

https://www.gnu.org/software/ncurses/
Displays and updates text on text-only terminals

The ncurses (new curses) library is a free software emulation of curses in System V Release 4.0 and more. It uses terminfo format, supports pads and color and multiple highlights and forms charcters and function-key mapping, and has all the other SYSV-curses enhancements over BSD curses. It should port easily to any ANSI/POSIX-conforming UNIX-like system. On systems supporting libiconv, the library can be built to support wide- and multibyte-character applications, e.g., UTF-8. The distribution includes the library and support utilities, including a terminfo compiler tic, a decompiler infocmp, clear, tput, tset, and a termcap conversion tool captoinfo.
