    I see there is Mono Curses so you could have a text based GUI that has colors.  I see it uses a native ncurses library.  Can it handle mouse events as well?
    System.Console in .net core has colors but does not have mouse event handling.

    What is needed to have a TUI that uses ncurses and is cross platform that can run on .net core and mono?  Platforms including Linux, Mac, and Windows.
