~ireas/rusty-man#2: 
Add terminal user interface

A TUI would allow the user to browse the documentation more efficiently, for example by folding parts of the documentation, by searching the documentation and by quickly jumping to documentation items.

I did some experiments with the two most popular TUI libraries, cursive and tui. Both are great libraries, but I had some issues implementing an interface for rusty-man:

  • tui apparently only supports static layouts.
  • cursive feels very unresponsive on my machine. This might be due to the small offset (5 lines) when scrolling a ScrollView, but I also experienced input lag.

I’ve implemented a basic tui viewer with commit e222a1f4. #19 is a follow-up issues to track new commands.
