Goncurses is an ncurses library for the Go programming language. It requires both pkg-config and ncurses C development files be installed.


The go tool is the recommended method of installing goncurses. Issue the following command on the command line:

$ go get github.com/vsakkas/goncurses

OSX and Windows users should visit the Wiki for installation instructions.


No functions which operate only on stdscr have been implemented because it makes little sense to do so in a Go implementation. Stdscr is treated the same as any other window.

Whenever possible, versions of ncurses functions which could potentially have a buffer overflow, like the getstr() family of functions, have not been implemented. Instead, only mvwgetnstr() and wgetnstr() are used.

func NewTerm

func NewTerm(termType string, out, in *os.File) (*Screen, error)

NewTerm returns a new Screen, representing a physical terminal. If using this function to generate a new Screen you should not call Init(). Unlike Init(), NewTerm does not call Refresh() to clear the screen so this will need to be done manually. When finished with a terminal, you must call End() in reverse order that each terminal was created in. After you are finished with the screen you must call Delete to free the memory allocated to it. This function is usually only useful for programs using multiple terminals or test for terminal capabilities. The argument termType is the type of terminal to be used ($TERM is used if value is "" which also has the same effect of using os.Getenv("TERM"))

func (*Screen) Delete

Delete frees memory allocated to the screen. This function

func (*Screen) End

func (s *Screen) End()

End is just a wrapper for the global End function. This helper function has been provided to help ensure that new terminals are closed in the proper, reverse order they were created. It makes the terminal active via set then called End so it is closed properly. You must make sure that Delete is called once done with the screen/terminal.

Box draws a border around the given window. For complete control over the characters used to draw the border use Border()

func (*Window) Clear

func (w *Window) Clear() error

Clears the screen and the underlying virtual screen. This forces the entire screen to be rewritten from scratch. This will cause likely cause a noticeable flicker because the screen is completely cleared before redrawing it. This is probably not what you want. Instead, you should probably use the Erase() function. It is the same as called Erase() followed by a call to ClearOk().

func (*Window) ClearOk

func (w *Window) ClearOk(ok bool)

ClearOk clears the window completely prior to redrawing it. If called on stdscr then the whole screen is redrawn no matter which window has Refresh() called on it. Defaults to False.

func (*Window) MovePrintf

func (w *Window) MovePrintf(y, x int, format string, args ...interface{})

MovePrintf moves the cursor to coordinates and prints the message using the specified format. See Printf and MovePrint for more information.

func (*Window) MovePrintln

func (w *Window) MovePrintln(y, x int, args ...interface{})

MovePrintln moves the cursor to coordinates and prints the message. See Println and MovePrint for more details.

func (*Window) Nodelay

func (w *Window) Nodelay(nodelay bool) error

Nodelay on causes GetChar() to be a non-blocking call.

func (*Window) NoutRefresh

func (w *Window) NoutRefresh()

NoutRefresh, or No Output Refresh, flags the window for redrawing but does not output the changes to the terminal (screen). Essentially, the output is buffered and a call to Update() flushes the buffer to the terminal. This function provides a speed increase over calling Refresh() when multiple windows are involved because only the final output is transmitted to the terminal.

func (*Window) Overlay

func (w *Window) Overlay(src *Window) error

Overlay copies overlapping sections of src window onto the destination window. Non-blank elements are not overwritten.

func (*Window) Overwrite

func (w *Window) Overwrite(src *Window) error

Parent returns a pointer to a Sub-window's parent, or nil if the window has no parent

func (*Window) Print

func (w *Window) Print(args ...interface{})

Print a string to the given window. See the fmt package in the standard library for more information. In order to simulate the 'n' version of functions (like addnstr) just slice your string to the maximum length before passing it as an argument. window.Print("My line which should be clamped to 20 characters"[:20])

func (*Window) Printf

Standout is equivalent to AttrSet(A_STANDOUT)

func (*Window) Sub

func (w *Window) Sub(height, width, y, x int) *Window

SubWindow creates a new window of height and width at the coordinates y, x. This window shares memory with the original window so changes made to one window are reflected in the other. It is necessary to call Touch() on this window prior to calling Refresh in order for it to be displayed.

func (*Window) Sync

func (w *Window) Sync(sync int)

Sync updates all parent or child windows which were created via SubWindow() or DerivedWindow(). Argument can be one of: SYNC_DOWN, which syncronizes all parent windows (done by Refresh() by default so should rarely, if ever, need to be called); SYNC_UP, which updates all child windows to match any updates made to the parent; and, SYNC_CURSOR, which updates the cursor position only for all windows to match the parent window

func (*Window) Timeout

func (w *Window) Timeout(delay int)

Timeout sets the window to blocking or non-blocking read mode. Calls to GetCh will behave in the following manor depending on the value of delay: <= -1 - blocking mode is set (blocks indefinitely) == 0 - non-blocking; returns zero (0) >= 1 - blocks for delay in milliseconds; returns zero (0)
