This package is not currently in any snapshots. If you're interested in using it, we recommend adding it to Stackage Nightly. Doing so will make builds more reliable, and allow stackage.org to host generated Haddocks.

When developing interactive command line applications in an editor like Emacs GHCi typically has no access to an actual terminal. This is good enough for applications that only read lines from stdin and print diagnostics to stdout, but as soon as terminal functionality is needed, the application has to be tested elsewhere.

This package provides functionality that, when used together with the rapid library, can open a persistent terminal that the application can access directly, such that terminal applications can be tested with the main GHCi instance.

You can find a tutorial in the documentation of the Rapid.Term module.
