I had never heard of it and had to google for it.
It appears to be a curses based CLI for *nix and MacOS

Why not read the bpython source to see what they used?
Thats the big advantage of open source - its open!
(Although they don't make the source explicitly available,
I'm assuming the tar file contains the source- it might
even be in Python!)

They use pygments to parse the source as you type.
That would be worth investigating too...
