I'm looking for something like a dialog/ncurses menu but as a full interface. There are plenty of of programs I have found that do a task like say: find a file and delete it, connect to an AP, monitor cpu, and cfile browser... But I'm looking for more like a complete interface, like a simplified cli environment. Or a text menu version of the main menu from the gui, from which I can browse or launch non graphical apps and files.
I know I could probably achieve what I want with a massive number of shell scripts, dialog menus, boxes, lists, and a collection of existing programs but I figured before I put in the time and effort it would be prudent to see if one already existed.
I have tried finding such a thing via Google search and Github without much luck. Does something like this exists?
