Next level console apps with Spectre.Console

Even if they're not our main focus, many of us regularly create console applications in .NET, be it to test some feature, run some benchmarks or automate some tasks.

In all these use cases, we get the job done, but not being the main focus of our day-to-day job, things end up a bit hacky and not as easy to use as they could.

What if I told you we can have our cake and eat it too? Or, in better words, we can create these console applications to help us, but make them more user friendly without too much hassle.

That's exactly where Spectre.Console comes in, an open source library that helps us create beautiful console applications, from parsing command line arguments, prompting the user for information, providing progress reports and much more!
