Creating a UI on a microcontroller: Part 10

I've done a little more work on my retro 'computer terminal' application. When it started out, the key feature was messaging over the mesh network library I've also been working on.

All the code was there but just commented out while I got the user interface library knocked into shape. So I uncommented it and spent some time making some improvements. Again it also showed up some limitations in the UI library. Most of these were around showing/hiding the cursor and moving it back to the line where you're typing reliably.

With these ironed out, the basic chat functionality pretty much just worked despite being written a year ago and not touched since.

I've done a little video of two terminals sending chat messages. At one point I had a 'bot' that produced Lorem Ipsum any time there was activity in a chat. I must dust that off.
