While NetworkManager already has great integration with the GNOME and KDE desktops and there are command-line interfaces to this open-source network management program, there's now a new curses-based interface.

Should you be using NetworkManager from the command-line, committed this morning to Git is "nmtui", a curses-based text user interface for NetworkManager.

This new text user interface to NetworkManager using curses adds nearly 25,000 new lines of code to the NetworkManager code-base.

More details on NetworkManager's new nmtui command can be found via the Git commit adding the new component.
