Just a simple TUI client for
steamcmd. Allows for the graphical launching, updating, and downloading of steam games through a simple terminal client. Methodology informed by steam-cli.
steamcmd first to cache your credentials (don't trust some random app with your passwords):
steamcmd # Steam> login <user> # Steam> quit
Launch the binary
steam-tui, and rejoice
Unable to launch games? Pressing space will start a bare-bones steam client (no graphics) in the background and will let you launch games that need steam libraries or have some sort of DRM.
steamcmd is required to launch steam-tui, as
steam-tui is essentially just a graphical wrapper for this program.
wine usage will be attempted if a native Linux game is not found.
Because why not? Also, the Steam client seems to break on my Arch build. I have a GT 610, and barely anything graphical works- this is a nice work around.
At this point, I am very much done with the project. I only really play Kerbal and 5 Dimensional Chess with Multiverse Time Travel, so additional work on this project is moot. If you buy me a coffee, I'd be happy to sink some more time into this.
