RustCI RustCI RustCI Crates.io License Documentation

requestty (request-tty) is an easy-to-use collection of interactive cli prompts inspired by Inquirer.js.

  • Easy-to-use - The builder API and macros allow you to easily configure and use the in-built prompts.

  • Extensible - Easily create and use custom prompts with a companion ui rendering library.

  • Flexible - All prompts can be used standalone or chained together.

  • Dynamic - You can dynamically decide what questions should be asked based on previous questions.

  • Validation - You can validate user input with any prompt.

  • Examples - Every prompt is accompanied with an example as well as other examples for more complex workflows
