An X11 key press/release catcher/sender wrapper with abstractions
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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).
Extract exoskelegram from the downloaded file, cd into it and run this in a terminal:
# python3 setup.py install
Examples are available in the examples directory.
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.
exoskelegram uses Git for code management. The newest (and perhaps unstable) code is available at:
$ git clone git://gitorious.org/exoskelegram/exoskelegram.git
