About

Urwid is a console user interface library for Python on Linux, OSX, Cygwin or other unix-like OS and partially supports Windows OS (see below).

It includes many features useful for text console application developers including:

  • Applications resize quickly and smoothly
  • Automatic, programmable text alignment and wrapping
  • Simple markup for setting text attributes within blocks of text
  • Powerful list box with programmable content for scrolling all widget types
  • Your choice of event loops: Twisted, Glib, Tornado, asyncio, trio, ZeroMQ or select-based loop
  • Pre-built widgets include edit boxes, buttons, check boxes and radio buttons
  • Display modules include raw, curses, and experimental LCD and web displays
  • Support for UTF-8, simple 8-bit and CJK encodings
  • 24-bit (true color), 256 color, and 88 color mode support
  • Compatible with Python 3.7+ and PyPy

Home Page: http://urwid.org/

Installation

To install using pip

.. code:: bash

pip install urwid

For advanced functionality extra requirements need to be installed. Example for ZeroMQ event loop and LCD display:

.. code:: bash

pip install urwid[serial,zmq]

Alternatively if you are on Debian or Ubuntu

.. code:: bash

apt-get install python3-urwid

Windows support notes

  • Not supported:
  1. Terminal widget and all related render API (TermCanvas, TermCharset, TermModes, TermScroller)
  2. Any file descriptors except sockets (Windows OS limitation)
  3. ZMQEventLoop.
  • Special requirements:
  1. Extra libraries required for curses display support:

.. code-block:: bash

pip install urwid[curses]
  • CursesDisplay incorrectly handles mouse input in case of fast actions.
  • Only UTF-8 mode is supported.

Testing

To run tests locally, install & run tox. You must have appropriate Python versions installed to run tox for each of them.

To test code in all Python versions:

.. code:: bash

tox                     # Test all versions specified in tox.ini:
tox -e py39             # Test Python 3.9 only
tox -e py39,py10,pypy3  # Test Python 3.9, Python 3.10 & pypy3

Supported Python versions

  • 3.7
  • 3.8
  • 3.9
  • 3.10
  • 3.11
