Thin wrapper around terminal coloring, styling, and positioning
Blessings lifts several of curses’ limiting assumptions, and it makes your code pretty
Use styles, color, and maybe a little positioning without necessarily clearing the whole screen first. Leave more than one screenful of scrollback in the buffer after your program exits, like a well-behaved command-line app should. Get rid of all those noisy, C-like calls to tigetstr and tparm, so your code doesn’t get crowded out by terminal bookkeeping. Act intelligently when somebody redirects your output to a file, omitting the terminal control codes the user doesn’t want to see.
