Kickstart TUI- is there even such thing?

The system-config-kickstart utility provides convenient way to create a Kickstart file while working in graphical environment. It greatly eliminates the chance of typos to sneak in this important config file.
Graphical environment however isn't always available. Is there such thing as a TUI version of a tool for automated creation of ks.cfg file? Or anything that is command-line-only tool remotely equivalent of system-config-kickstart?

In Centos/RHEL 6 and 7, even the GUI tool is not really recommended, since it hasn't been updated for new kickstart functionality in those releases. See

I don't think there has ever been a TUI tool.

Thank you berndbausch,that's unfortunate. They changed the syntax of Kickstart but wouldn't update their tool.
