Best Practices for Inclusive CLIs - @Seirdy : https://seirdy.one/posts/2022/06/10/cli-best-practices/
My understanding so far has been limited to "use Gettext & (unless its usability benefits are undeniable) avoid NCurses", based on what annoys @devinprater .
I think if you’re building a TUI it should generally be one of multiple options that share a library/backend or it should be something with many alternatives that are at least equivalent, given the poor accessibility of TUIs in general. If one of those things is true, then it should be fine to use ncurses for the TUI.
For people who care about, support, or build Free, Libre, and Open Source Software (FLOSS).
