Hi all!
  I'm trying to design a library, which should provide "graphical objects" for 
the console. Meaning standardised buttons, checkboxes, sliders, etc. The 
purpose of this project is: to bring gui-based audio-software to the console. 
What I'm wondering now is the following:
  It would still be a certain amount of work, to program a textbased ui with 
this library. So which way of using this library would be best?
  Could any of you imagine good ways to communicate objects of your software 
to a kind of server. Something like OSC? So this server can run and you start 
the program on the gui and it tells the server: I have th following objects. 
Could this be a way of designing it? Would this be sensible? Or would it be 
better to only provide a c++ API?
  Good thoughts and ideas are wellcome.
  Kindest regards
