Or how to make your program OS agnostic... at compile time
Credits to @ashleymcnamara. Recently, I started to use termui in order to build and run a modular dashboard on the terminal. This dashboard will display my daily todo list, some informations about my git projects/repositories, some daily news, etc… I use everyday: a macbook pro, and a GNU/Linux laptop - so, two different operating systems. Even if macOS and GNU/Linux share similar parts, those systems are strictly differents, and I will have to compile the dashboard for each one.
