Blessed is a thin, practical wrapper around terminal capabilities in
Python. It provides:
* Styles, color, and maybe a little positioning without necessarily
clearing the whole screen first.
* Works great with standard Python string formatting.
* Provides up-to-the-moment terminal height and width, so you can
respond to terminal size changes.
* Avoids making a mess if the output gets piped to a non-terminal:
outputs to any file-like object such as StringIO, files, or pipes.
* Uses the terminfo(5) database so it works with any terminal type and
supports any terminal capability: No more C-like calls to tigetstr
and tparm.
* Keeps a minimum of internal state, so you can feel free to mix and
match with calls to curses or whatever other terminal libraries you
* Provides plenty of context managers to safely express terminal modes,
automatically restoring the terminal to a safe state on exit.
* Act intelligently when somebody redirects your output to a file,
omitting all of the terminal sequences such as styling, colors, or
positioning.  Dead-simple keyboard handling: safely decoding unicode
input in your system's preferred locale and supports
application/arrow keys.
* Allows the printable length of strings containing sequences to be
