Q.  Curses GUI for BOINC?

A.  Yes, there is boinctui !

Its home page
https://code.google.com/archive/p/boinctui/

I download the Fedora rpm from here
https://code.google.com/archive/p/boinctui/downloads

Its labelled Fedora 15 to 19 but it worked for me on Fedora 28.
Looks like it hasn't been updated since 2013.  Maybe because its perfect ;)
Once downloaded, I installed it as root with

rpm -Uvh boinctui-2.2.1-0.fc19.x86_64.rpm
I then logged in as my BOINC user and did
export TERM=linux boinctui
Using it is pretty self-explanatory. I love this project.
