@dgelessus mentioned it, but I'd like to confirm the whole hud_alert sending a constant KeyboardInterupt when you hide the cancel button. I don't know why it was never noted when I posted in July.

[BugReport] console.input_alert always sends KeyboardInterrupt when hide_cancel_button is True
console.input_alert(title[, message, input, ok_button_title, hide_cancel_button=False])
Show a dialog with a single text field. The text field can be pre-filled with the input parameter. The text that was entered by the user is returned. The ‘Cancel’ button sends a KeyboardInterrupt.
I've been writing a script that makes use of some user input_alerts and login_alerts from the console library. The script is designed to allow users to get a listing of a SFTP folder and download a "list" of files from the server to a folder within Pythonista. The selector makes use of a number input into a input_alert. Wanting to avoid the script termination to a KeyboardInterrupt
I hid the Cancel button only to discover that it always causes a KeyboardInterrupt. For an example I am providing the Gist to the script since it is mostly complete and I planned on sharing it upon completion anyway.
