A ncurses based UI for calling libxdo (from xdotool) functions to simulate keypresses and mouse actions.
The latest git version of xdotools is probably needed and it's available at https://github.com/jordansissel/xdotool . This is required by guile-xdo for libxdo.
A wrapper library for libxdo in GNU Guile that is available at https://github.com/KoFish/guile-xdo it should be pretty complete and hopefully useful for other things too.
A wrapper library for ncurses in GNU Guile that is required for doing the whole UI stuff in XDO UI. It's available at http://www.gnu.org/software/guile-ncurses/
The interface is slightly inspired by vim but it's less intelligent. When you
start the application you get a parse-tree accepting keys by object to act on;
w is for windows,
m is for mouse,
h is for help and
q is for quit, etc.
There are also a bunch of "helper" functions, such as
' which changes
registers to use (more on that in a bit). There is also the concept of prefixes.
A prefix is data that can be used in different functions besides the values stored in registers. Prefixes always has to be entered manually and there are a couple of ways to do that. Number prefixes can be entered by simply pressing number keys before any command, string prefixes can be entered by pressing enter, entering the text in the dialog that pops up, terminating with enter or ctrl-d, and then doing the command.
When running XDO UI you have access to a whole bunch of registers, easiest of
them to use is probably a-z. When doing a command you can specify two different
registers, one load register and one store register. Store register is specified
" followed by one of the accepted registers, and in that case the value
from the function called is stored in this register instead of being printed to
the main-window. Similary the
' followed by a register changes the load
register, this register can be used to input values to a function.
Example: To move the currently active window to where the mouse curser is you
would do the following command
"agmp"bwga'awp which can be read as following:
get the current
position into register
a, get the active window
into register b, put window at position stored in register a. To but the window
at the position 100x200 you could do it by calling pe100x200wp, this you could
