I'm happy to hear you would like to help out. Attached is a mockup of a
gui calling readline, does this approach seem reasonable to you as a
I'm inexperienced in building guis so I would appreciate some help in
improving the eventhandler to translate keyevents to a KeyEvent object.
At a first glance at the event handling in Tk it seems it requires some
work to get the control, shift, meta modifiers that were used for a
certain keypress. So right now this example needs improvement so we can
handle those modifiers. This is where I would appreciate to get some
assistance, I would prefer to have such an example in Tk or Wx since
those are the systems I use the most.
It would also be nice to able to draw the cursor and also to mark a text
selection as well.
