Libptytty is a small library that offers pseudo-TTY management in an OS-independent way. It was created out of frustration over the many differences of PTY/TTY handling in different operating systems for use inside "rxvt-unicode". It also offers session database support (utmp and optional wtmp/lastlog updates for login shells) and supports forking a proxy process after startup and dropping privileges in the calling process. It offers C++ and C-only APIs.
Conch is an SSHv2, Telnet, and VT102 implementation. It interfaces well with other Python projects such as Imagination, and includes an experimental console windowing library (Insults) and support for rudimentary line editing behaviors. A new implementation of Twisted's Manhole application is also included, featuring server-side input history and interactive syntax coloring.
JChassis TermUI is an API for simple GUI-like user interfaces on ANSI/VT100-compliant terminals and terminal emulators, such as Linux virtual terminals, GNOME Terminal, and KDE Konsole. The intent is similar to that of the ncurses library, but done in pure Java. Several commonly used widgets are available.
JChassis ANSI Terminal Controller is a Java API for controlling ANSI-compliant terminals and terminal emulators such a Linux virtual terminals, xterm, Gnome Terminal, and KDE Konsole. The library can be used to display character styles and colors and graphical characters in those environments. It is a repackaging of various JChassis modules into a standalone library that does not require the JChassis SDK or framework.
ROTE is a simple C library for VT102 terminal emulation. It allows the programmer to set up virtual 'screens' and send them data. The virtual screens will emulate the behavior of a VT102 terminal, interpreting escape sequences, control characters and such. The library supports ncurses as well so that you may render the virtual screen to the real screen when you need to.
