Project Description

exoskelegram is an X11 key press/release catcher/sender wrapper with abstractions. In a future release, in addition to being able to catch and send X key events from Python programs, exoskelegram will allow you to use simple config files to temporarily reprogram your entire keyboard — or just a part of it.


exoskelegram is free software under the terms of the GNU Affero General Public License version 3 (or any later version). This is version 0.1.0 of the program.


The author of exoskelegram is Niels Serup. Bug reports and suggestions should be sent to for the time being.



exoskelegram requires the X11 headers and the Xtst extension. If you’re using a package manager, remember to install the development packages (*-dev or *-devel or something similar).

Way #1

Get the newest version of exoskelegram at or at

Extract exoskelegram from the downloaded file, cd into it and run this in a terminal:

# python3 install

Examples are available in the examples directory.

Way #2

Just run this:

# pip-3.1 install exoskelegram

Note that this will not make any examples available.


As a command-line tool

Run exoskelegram to use it. Run exoskelegram --help to see how to use it.

As a module

To find out how to use it, run:

$ pydoc3 exoskelegram.xkeylib


There are a few examples in the examples directory. None of them apply to the current few-features version.
