#252 Choose a better TERM environment variable value, or implement cursor movement escape codes 10 months ago

TERM=dumb-emacs-ansi is the best match I could find in my ncurses package; though that's only 8 colour, not 256.

So you might be better off creating your own terminfo file for whatever your GUI supports rendering. You could set the env var TERMINFO to a bind-mounted folder or temporary folder containing your definitions.

Playback with something like asciinema would be an interesting alternative.
