CDK is a library written in C that provides a collection of widgets for text user interfaces (TUI) development. The widgets wrap ncurses functionality to make writing full screen curses programs faster. Perl[1][2] and Python[3] bindings are also available.

There are two versions of the library. It was originally written by Mike Glover, introduced as version 4.6 in comp.sources.unix.[4] The other version was extended beginning in May 1999 by Thomas Dickey.
