    I didn't like the way lan-play-GUI worked (electron and didn't show the lan-play stdout/stderr) so I wrote a simple terminal based GUI for myself and perhaps others who feel the same way I do.

    Features
    - Remembers the last server you connected to
    - Offers a server list so you can add servers you keep going back to
    - That's pretty much it

    It works on Linux and should work on Windows (haven't tested it on Windows so don't take my word for it). Run it as root/admin since switch-lan-play requires root privileges

    It's nice because you can have the UI running and disconnect/switch servers without having to close the program and type the address again.

    Yes, I know my program isn't a GUI but a TUI. It's too late to edit the title :^)

    Nice work!

    Any way to add a new server from GUI?

    'q' to exit don't work here when connected, that's normal?

    congratz again!

    As of now there's no way do add a server from GUI, but I'd argue it's easier to just edit servers.json. If you connect to a server manually through the GUI, you can also chose "launch latest config" to connect back to that one.

    As for the q to when connected, it instead just stops the connection. If you care enough I could probably change it up and add another keybind for halting the connection. If you press q 3 times fast (or slow) it quits too so you could do that instead.

    By the way, are you using it on Windows? Either way, thanks for using it :)
