Dormouse ('Doryen' + 'Mouse', groan) is a windowing `graphical' user interface built on top of libtcod
. The programmer creates Window objects which are displayed on the root console
. The mouse can be used to move, resize, and close windows. Keyboard and mouse events are sent to whichever window object has the focus.
Like libtcod, dormouse is designed with a view towards making it quicker and easier for hobbyists to write roguelike games. It can be used to write any application that uses libtcod and requires higher-level 'GUI' features.
