# Raku Console UI Toolkit Vikna

Pronounced as _Veekna_. In Ukrainian it means 'windows'. ;)



Vikna is in its deep, deep infancy stage. Mostly being a proof of concept now than a real thing. Yet, it already has
many of the key elements an UI framework must have. Just check out 
[_./examples_]( directory to get the first impression. But be
patient when trying [_threaded-rainbow.raku_](

The project requires Raku to implement chained dispatching. Because my implementation of the feature for 
Rakudo had to be reverted from the _master_ Vikna won't work correctly with standard Rakudo releases. But it can be tried with 
_v-dispatchers_ branch in either [main Rakudo repository]( or in
[my fork of it]( The situation will change when Jonathan Worthington
will succeed with his total redesign of dispatching which is much awaited by many as it gonna bring a lot of new
opportunities to Rakudo.
