The framework is called free vision and it comes with a demo in packages/fv/examples in the FPC sources.

And of course the IDE itself is in packages/ide

The framework is similar to Turbo Pascal's  Turbo Vision. But books for that might be hard to find.

Hi!

Search the web for

Turbo Vision PDF

There are some copies of the manual from Borland in the web.

Write your own TUI (Text User Interface). Not too hard not easy neither.
