I've heard rumblings about Urwid occasionally; today I actually had a chance to use it. For those who haven't seen it before, Urwid is a pure Python library for console user interfaces. It can uses curses as the backend or speak directly to the terminal emulator. The library isn't too complex and as long as you can pick colors better than I can the TUIs look pretty nice. Check it out the next time you don't want to write a GUI.
