Golang : Get terminal width and height example

Problem :

You want to find out a terminal/console's width and height to calibrate your Golang text based program display. How to do that?

Solution :

Use the GoTerm package to determine the terminal dimension. For example :

 package main

 import (

 func main() {
 terminalHeight := goterm.Height()
 terminalWidth := goterm.Width()

 fmt.Println("Terminal height : ", terminalHeight)
 fmt.Println("Terminal width : ", terminalWidth)


Sample output :

Terminal height : 50

Terminal width : 139
