girara an interface library

girara is a library that implements a user interface that focuses on simplicity and minimalism. Currently based on GTK+, a cross-platform widget toolkit, it provides an interface that focuses on three main components: A so-called view widget that represents the actual application (e.g. a website (browser), an image (image viewer) or the document (document viewer)), an input bar that is used to execute commands of the application and the status bar which provides the user with current information. girara was designed to replace and enhance the user interface that is used by zathura and jumanji and other features that those applications share.

Wide range of features

  • Map certain key bindings to specific functions
  • Usage of so-called bufferd commands that allows the user to map whole words like foo and bar to functions
  • Respond to mouse events like clicking/releasing of certain buttons, scrolling and even mouse movement
  • Execute parameterizable commands that can be easily extended with a completion function for arguments
  • A statusbar that displays up to date information of the application and that can handle mouse events
  • A complete settings management which allows the storage of certain variables that can be configured by built-in commands
  • Reasonable default values and functions
  • Parsing and evaluation of configuration files
  • Useful data structures and utility functions
  • Possibility to use tabs
  • Support for either GTK2 or GTK3 applications
