About Urwid
Urwid is a curses-based UI/widget library for Python. It features fluid
interface resizing, multiple text layout options, simple markup for 
attributes, powerful scrolling list boxes and flexible edit boxes.

Urwid maximizes the use of your available screen real estate. It does 
*not* provide code for box drawing or simulated drop shadows. It aims to
make writing professional, responsive console applictions easier.

Urwid is licensed under the GNU GPL.
