Looking for cli applications
I'm experimenting in gui-less computing just to see what can be done.
The things I have been unable to find so far are
Browser that renders images, css and tables (this is very annoying)
Visual image editor. I don't think imagemagik is?
Calendar / to do list kind of thing
Does anyone knows of software that will meet these needs?
Things I have working
Web browsing (links2) - When I run links2 -g (which I believe is supposed to display graphics, it just freaks my display and I have to reboot. I don't even know how to describe what it does
Mail (mutt, fetchmail and procmail)
Word processing (word grinder)
Servers (apache, mysql)
Things I know I can do but haven't yet
MP3 Player (and other media)

"Hey App, switch that pixel in the upper left corner to red."
Sounds like Linux Framebuffer to me. You can pipe pixel data directly to /dev/video.
That means you would read the source image, filter it in order to replace the particular pixel, and stream it back to the device driver.
There are some spreadsheet plugins available for GNU Emacs, and I assume for vi as well.Debian GNU/Linux -- You know you want it.

For music, graphical environment or not, I almost always use ncmpcpp + mpd
Spreadsheet: there is also oleo.
Movies, yeah, mplayer is about it. VLC has a curses interface, but I at least never figured out if it could play from the framebuffer.
Calendar/personal organizer: calcurse
Image viewing including pdf: fbida
